NEW SERIES ALERT: The Bourbon Kings by J. R. Ward


I originally posted this info on Facebook 7/27 but didn’t post it to the blog. First info came from a Facebook post on J.R. Ward’s page saying, “I’m writing book one of my new series, The Bourbon Kings, right now- and then starting Trez and iAm’s book September 1! IMMORTAL, the last of the Fallen Angels series, comes out in October so get ready for Jim’s final battles!”

I immediately went into fangirl mode, searched the internet and then emailed Berkley/NAL contacts. I got confirmation from Berkley that the books are theirs and the news showed up 7/28 in a Publishers Weekly article.

Book Deals: Week of July 28, 2014 via @publisherswkly

“NAL Inks Ward to New Series
Bestselling author J.R. Ward has signed a three-book, world rights deal with New American Library to do a contemporary series. Called the Bourbon Kings, the series will, as NAL explained, “follow the intertwined fortunes of several ultrawealthy Kentucky families who have made their fortunes from bourbon.” The first Bourbon Kings book is set for late 2015. The deal was brokered by NAL’s Kara Welsh and Steven Axelrod at the Axelrod Agency. Ward, the pen name for Jessica Bird, writes paranormal romance (and romances under her given name); as J.R. Ward, her series include the Black Dagger Brotherhood and the Fallen Angels. Lucy Stille at Agency for the Performing Arts is handling film/television rights for the series.” ~Publishers Weekly

I can’t wait for more details and I will let y’all know as soon as I know anything new about the series! I’m also really intrigued with the film/television rights comment in the article! /Cori

J.R. Ward is a #1 New York Times and USAToday Best Selling author of erotic paranormal romance. She lives in the south with her incredibly supportive husband and her beloved golden retriever. After graduating from law school, she began working in healthcare in Boston and spent many years as Chief of Staff of one of the premier academic medical centers in the nation.

Review: Personal Target: An Elite Ops Novel by Kay Thomas


Personal Target: An Elite Ops Novel by Kay Thomas
Publication Date: July 29, 2014
Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna
Rated: 3.5 Stars

AEGIS: an elite team of ex-military men working under the radar of most governments. If you have a problem no one else can handle, they can help.

A former SEAL and Black Ops specialist who left the CIA, Nick Donovan gave up a life on the edge to work in the private sector. But that didn’t stop his enemies from coming after him—or his family. In a case of mistaken identity, a drug cartel kidnaps his sister-in-law’s best friend … a woman from Nick’s past.

One minute Jennifer Grayson is housesitting and the next she’s abducted to a foreign brothel. Jennifer is planning her escape when her first “customer” arrives. Nick, the man who broke her heart years ago, has come to her rescue. Now, as they race for their lives, passion for each other reignites and old secrets resurface. Can Nick keep the woman he loves safe against an enemy with a personal vendetta?

The globe-trotting action was non-stop in this romantic suspense novel. I liked the storyline with all its twists and turns. It kept you wondering and engaged. I just wish Jenny and Nick’s relationship and feelings pulled me in more. It seemed like they had sex due to opportunity and not heartfelt desire. That beings said, I did enjoy the ride.

Release Blast & Giveaway: In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall

Calling all paranormal romance lovers! Do fangs make you tingle? Do you crave a new twist on an age-old myth? If you answered ‘Yes!’, then you’ll want to check out this novella from Dianne Duvall’s bestselling Immortal Guardians series, available July 29th – IN STILL DARKNESS! 

Title: In Still Darkness
Series: Immortal Guardians #3.5
Author: Dianne Duvall
Format: ebook, 118 pages (novella)
Expected publication: July 29th 2014 by Zebra Books
ISBN: 1420137921
Genre: Paranormal Romance

In Dianne Duvall’s world of Immortal Guardians, the stakes for mortals are high, but the cost-especially to the heart-might be higher…It’s not the first time Immortal Guardian Richart d’Alencon has saved a human life from eternal damnation. Usually, he moves on, a nameless savior like a ghost in the night. But this time he can’t seem to forget the woman who rewarded him with a sensuous kiss after he rescued her from a trio of vampires. While Richart knows that loving a human can only bring trouble, the taste of forbidden lust is too great to resist…

Jenna never imagined she’d end up a single mom working overtime to put her son through school. But she might have daydreamed once that a devastatingly gorgeous Frenchman would sweep her off her feet. Now that a package of tall, dark, and handsome seems intent on doing just that, doctors are telling her she may not have long to live. But Richart is telling her just the opposite. All she has to do is abandon her humanity…

Includes a special sneak peek of NIGHT UNBOUND


Richart stumbled backward and wrapped his arms around the woman to keep her from falling.

Clinging to the front of his shirt, she buried her face in his chest. “Is he gone?”

“Yes,” he responded, surprised she was so coherent. When vampires and immortals turned, glands formed above the retractable fangs they grew that released a chemical much like GHB under the pressure of a bite. So she should be slurring her words.

Hell, he was surprised she still stood. “What about the others?”

“They’re gone,” he assured her. Or they would be soon. A quick glance confirmed that they were shriveling up like mummies as the virus, unable to heal their wounds fast enough to keep them from dying, devoured them from the inside out in a desperate bid to live. By the time it finished, nothing would remain of them save the clothing and jewelry they wore.

Weaving on her feet, the woman straightened and looked up at him. She couldn’t be much more than five feet tall and he was six foot one. “Y-your eyes are glowing.”

Her pupils were dilated, blocking out almost all of the pale green, leaving only a few flakes of brown.

Richart retracted his fangs. “Yes. I know it looks bad, but—”

She shook her head. “I think they’re beautiful.”

Was that the drug talking? Or did she really think so?

“You saved me,” she said, awe and gratitude in her melodic voice. Loosening her death grip on his shirt, she cupped his face in both hands.

His heart skipped.

When was the last time a woman had touched his face so tenderly?

When was the last time a woman had touched him at all? Other than his sister punching him in the shoulder, doing her damnedest to kick his ass when they sparred, or doling out a hug here or there, he honestly couldn’t remember.

“Thank you,” the woman whispered. Rising onto her toes, she drew his head down and brushed her lips against his.

The contact hit him like an electrical shock. His heart began to pound as she tilted her head and increased the pressure, brushing, stroking. She combed her fingers through his short, black hair, sending shivers through him.

He parted his lips, met her tongue with his when she boldly thrust hers forward.

Pure heat.

She leaned into him, clutched him tighter.

His body hardened. His breath shortened. His arms tightened around her.

Her knees went limp. Her lips tore away from his as her head fell back. Her eyes closed. Her mouth hung open, lips pink from kissing him.

Richart stared down at her as his pulse pounded in his ears.

Yeah. She was out.

Cover Reveal: Tempted by a Rogue Prince (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 3) by Felicity Heaton


Tempted by a Rogue Prince (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 3)
Felicity Heaton

An elf prince on the verge of losing himself to the darkness, Vail is maddened by the forty-two centuries he was under the control of a witch and forced to war with his brother. Now, he roams Hell seeking an escape from his terrible past and the heads of all who bear magic. When demons of the Fifth Realm capture him, he sees a chance to end his existence, but when he wakes in a cell to a beautiful female, he finds not death but his only shot at salvation—his true fated mate.

Captured by the enemy of the Third Realm when the war ended, Rosalind has spent months in the cells of the Fifth Realm with her magic bound, forced to heal the new king’s demon warriors, and haunted by the lives she has taken. When she’s brought to heal an unconscious man, she discovers her only hope of escape has come in the form of her worst nightmare and the first part of a prediction that might spell her doom—a devastatingly handsome and dangerous dark elf prince.

Unwilling to fall under the control of anyone ever again, Vail must escape before the Fifth King can use him as a pawn in a deadly game of revenge, but he cannot leave without Rosalind, the woman who looks at him with dark desire in her stunning eyes and awakens a fierce hunger in his heart. A witch who drives him mad with need even as the darkness within whispers she will enslave him too.

Can Rosalind escape her fate as they embark on a journey fraught with danger and resist the temptation of her rogue elf prince? And can Vail overcome the memories that madden him in order to seize his chance for salvation and the heart of his fated female forever?

Spotlight & Giveaway: Self Published Authors


Today we’re spotlighting a few self-published authors we have reviewed. Self-publishing has become an easy way for authors to get their books directly to readers. Some authors are now both self published and published authors. They choose to publish some of their books with their publisher and others they self publish. Some authors are even working together on self published box sets. It’s awesome and as a reader I love it! I’ve come across so many great self-published authors since starting Reading In Pajamas. On our page you’ll see new authors and established authors. Books published by pretty much any publisher out there as well as self published books. As a reader it’s all about the story for me! Below you’ll find a few of the self published books we’ve reviewed and recommend.

If you are interested in hearing more about how self publishing works this is a great article I found that explains the process:

Denying Ecstasy (Guardians of the Realms, Book 3) by Setta Jay

Check out our Review 5 Stars:

A headstrong sassy mortal, Rain is a Mageia living in Tetartos, the Realm of beasts and Immortals. Her nights have been restless, filled with sensual dreams of a big blonde Guardian whose glares indicate he wants nothing to do with her. She is determined to shake off the odd feelings until she finds out her dream lover is responsible for her rescue from a demented Demi-God. In doing so, his touch ignites something rare and coveted. Something that she’s never anticipated… Something he should have told her about. Rain is set on making him explain and then feel the full force of her ire.

After a devastating betrayal resulting in the loss of a close friend a century ago, Dorian refuses to trust or engage with Immortals other than his Guardian family. His years of brutal fighting in the underground Immortal rings are over. He patrols the Realms and slakes his lust with the humans on Earth. Existing, but not living as he used to. He knows the moment he scents Rain that he has found his mate and after touching her he plans to avoid her as long as he can… Until he learns she is in danger. Raging, his beast demands that he go to her, but taking her from their enemy has repercussions he fully plans to escape at all costs.

For Dorian, finding a way out of mating Rain means he could succumb to madness and harm those that mean so much to him… but giving in to his burning urge for her means losing control in a heated mating frenzy sure to ignite them both and link them forever.

Warning: This book is intended for adult audiences; brief instances of M/F/F and M/F/M ménage; voyeurism and sexually explicit scenes.

The Plus One Chronicles Boxed Set by Jennifer Lyon

Check out our Review 5 Stars ➢

Don’t miss this bestselling, sexy and emotional trilogy now all together in a boxed set!

A proposition brings billionaire ex-UFC Fighter Sloane Michaels and beautifully damaged Kat Thayne together in fiery passion, but will a dark and dangerous obsession tear them apart?

**This boxed set is intended for readers 18 and over due to sexual content.**


Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.


Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and Kat takes over more and more his heart. Sloane is in a desperate balancing act of trying to keep the woman he loves while attaining the vengeance he craves.

After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.

Book Three: OBSESSION:

In the explosive conclusion to The Plus One Chronicles Trilogy, obscenely rich, jaggedly handsome and still obsessed with love and vengeance, Sloane Michaels must face an impossible choice: lose the woman he loves or betray his twin sister’s memory.

Watching the man she adores destroy himself for revenge, Kat Thayne knows she should run and never look back. But running isn’t her way anymore. Kat has grown into a fierce fighter, and the man who helped her get there is the very man who needs her strength now. But as the sizzling passion and hard-won love bind Kat and Sloane even tighter together, old secrets and lies explode around them. Danger threatens. And Kat soon realizes that she’s risking more than her heart to be with Sloane…she’s risking her very life.

Cover Reveal: King Tomb by Scarlett Dawn

From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spell-binding conclusion to the bestselling first Forever Evermore trilogy.

Queen Shifter, Lily Ruckler, has found solace in brutal warfare. Her bloodied fists and bared fangs fill the holes left in her memory, the blank spaces that leave her soul aching and empty. Her only pleasure is in blood; her only salvation is the relationship she has with her infant child, the baby of unknown origins who brings her solace and stability.

When Elder Harcourt summons Lily and her protector Antonio back to the United States, Lily thinks nothing unusual about the change of location. But a standard reconnaissance mission leaves her trapped inside King Zeller’s private quarters, and at his mercy. Surprise attraction rapidly turns to a battle of wills and an intense power struggle that leaves no clear victor but plenty of resentment.

They are not allowed to nurse their wounds. In order to win the war against the Commoners, the King Vampire and Queen Shifter must work together. It should be easy. The war is turning, the battle is deadly, and both Lily and Ezra love the cold cleanliness of combat. But their chance meeting has led to more than an unlikely alliance. Secrets have a way of surfacing, especially on a torn-up battlefield, and Lily and Ezra are about to re-learn all they cannot remember. If they can’t control their emotions and responses, it will be to their own ruin and the destruction of everything around them.

REVIEW: Getting Out of Hand (Sapphire Falls, Book One) by Erin Nicholas

Getting Out of Hand (Sapphire Falls, Book One) by Erin Nicholas
Publication Date: July 13, 2014
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Dawn
Rated: 4.5 Stars

Sapphire Falls, Book One

Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.

Then he meets the new girl in town.

Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.

Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.

Mason sure doesn’t look—or kiss—like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.

Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.

Getting Out of Hand, book one
Getting Worked Up, book two
Getting Dirty, book three

I loved it! Getting Out of Hand is the first book in the new series, Sapphire Falls by Erin Nicholas. There were charactors I loved, and others that I wanted to hate. Erin Nicholas makes her charactors seem so real to the reader. Mason wanted to ignore the invitation from Sapphire Falls, a little town he swore he would never step foot in again. A town that in his mind only wanted him back now for his money. When his assistant has to force him to take some time away from work, he figures he would make it a quick trip. The first thing he sees sees when he gets to town is Adrianne. Things heat up and their story had me flipping the pages. This is a great new series and I highly recommend it for readers looking for a great love story.
