BOOK BLITZ // Forbidden Desire

Forbidden Desire by L.M. Mountford


He closed the gap, his big hand moving to gently rest on her denim encased thigh. “I prefer more mature women. Women who know what they want and how to get it.”





To all the rest of the world, Elizabeth Clarke had it all.

A successful husband. A beautiful home. And now a son off to university.

She is a perfect housewife with the perfect life.

It’s a lie.

Her husband is a lying, drinking philanderer who hates her as much as she loathes him. Her home is beautiful, but empty, nothing more than a gilded cage to keep her trapped in a world she never wanted.

That is, until he came back into town.

Hugh Becket.

Her son’s best friend.

He’s hot, young, and so forbidden.

Elizabeth knows she should stay away, but when the devil comes knocking on her door in the middle of the night, what’s a poor neglected trophy wife to do?

Forbidden Desire is a super hot older woman / younger man romance. It has a HEA, NO Cliffhanger and all the steam you have come to expect from the Lord of Lust.

Excerpt

Oh God, was that monster his cock or did he just stick a bloody cucumber down his trousers?

Furiously scrubbing her hair with the towel, Elizabeth felt her cheeks burning at the memory of the appendage straining against Hugh’s trousers.

Oh fuck, he’s huge … Did I do that to him?

The thought came out of nowhere and sent a pulse of heat straight down to her clit. Shocked, she immediately tried to brush it aside, but then couldn’t help remembering the way he’d been watching her, the hot predatory gleam in his eyes as he’d looked her over.

She knew that look. It was a hot look, dark and hungry. Sultry and very, very dangerous in the eyes of a young stud.

She’d seen it a lot when she was younger. On Saturday nights out when she went out to hit the town with her girlfriends. The clubs and bars would be thronged with packs of men who’d watch them with that same look. Like packs of wild dogs, eyeing up a fresh juicy bit of meat. Some of Patrick’s mates had given her that same look over the years too, when they’d had a few too many and were likely to get handsy…

But to see Hugh giving her that same look. No, it couldn’t be.

She’d known him and his mother for years, since he and Victor were kids in playschool. He was young enough to be her son. He was her friend’s son, and her own son’s best friend. And she was too old for him, much too old.

I’m old enough to be his mother.

“Tea’s up!”

Her heart leapt at the husky voice.

Aimlessly scrubbing her hair, she swung around to find Hugh standing in the doorway, holding two steaming mugs. The vision was as breath-taking as it had been when he had been standing in the doorway. The image of him, in those casual distressed jeans and tight shirt, radiating such raw masculinity, an alpha male at ease in his territory, made her long to be twenty years younger.

He placed them on the coffee table.

“Still lots of milk and three sugars, right?”

Placing the towel over the headrest of one of the two matching armchairs that encircled one side of the table, she sat in one corner of the sofa that sat opposite. Able to practically feel the heat of his eyes on her skin through her clothes, she picked up the mug and sipped. Sweet and just that little bit shy of hot. Perfect.

“Cheers.”

Elizabeth sipped and sipped, until she knew she couldn’t avoid talking to Hugh any longer without seeming rude. Then she mentally kicked herself. She was being ridiculous.

This was Hugh, just Hugh. It didn’t matter that he had grown into a smouldering and sexy-as-hell Adonis. It was still Hugh. She focused on that, trying to think of the little boy she’d use to watch play in the park.

“So, Jen and Mike took off to the sun and gave you run of the house, huh? Where’d they go?”

“Gran Canaria,” he answered, sitting beside her. As it was a two-seater, there was just enough room on the sofa for them both. Just. “Dad scored a big commission, so they rented a condo out there for the month to celebrate.”

“Lucky for some…” Elizabeth could feel herself shaking from his closeness. His tone was offhand and casual, but the way the smokiness of his voice curled around the words, he might as well have been whispering dirty fuck-me-talk right in her ear. “So, does this mean you’ve finished your pupillage?”

He picked his own mug up off the glass tabletop. “Yep, I’m now a fully certified and experienced lawyer.”

“That’s great.” Her breath caught as he drank, her eyes immediately fixing on the subtle movements of his throat as he swallowed. Then she noticed his eyes, those intense, baleful blue eyes, burning bright against the inky dark of his pupils, watching her over the rim. She quickly looked away. “What are you going to do now? Take a break here while your parents are away then head off back to the city? Get snapped up by some big firm and become a hotshot city lawyer? I could just see you in the Old Bailey. Parading around in your robe and wig, then hitting the streets with your expensive tailored suits and flash super car. You were always a flash git, even when you and Victor were kids.”

“Ouch,” he mocked a hurt look. Then, putting the mug down, he rounded on her, the force of his presence enough to have her edging back into the sofa. “No, actually I’m here to stay. I took a job with a small firm down in Taunton. And I’m not involved in criminal law. I handle insurance.”

“Insurance?”

“Yeah, insurance, and a bit of property law. It’s less glamorous but steadier.” As he spoke, Elizabeth couldn’t help noticing he was edging closer. “And my clients aren’t likely to throw acid in my face if I can’t get them off.”

Their growing proximity had awareness tingling through her arms, and heat gathering in the pit of her belly. “Fair point. So, you’ve just moved back into your old room? Aren’t you a bit … err big for that now?”

“A little.” He teased and actually winked at her. “That’s why I’m kipping in the spare room while I look for a place of my own.”

“To rent?”

“Afraid so.”

He was getting closer, too close.

“Well it shouldn’t take long to find somewhere, if you know where to look. You know, there are some very nice places over my way.” Fuck, why had she said that.

“I remember.” His voice lowered, growing hotter like the space between them. “You’ll have to show me around, give me the grand tour.”

In spite of herself, Elizabeth’s heart leapt at the idea.

“Sure, pop round anytime you’re free and I’d be happy to show you the neighbourhood.” God, what was she saying? She really needed to stop talking now. But she couldn’t stop herself, it had just come out as her mind swam with the thought of him and her, alone, that body pushing up against her, all hard and male, his wicked mouth doing unspeakable things.

No, this wasn’t good. She needed to get things onto a safer ground. “I know Victor would love it. You haven’t seen him in ages. And it’s such a great place to start a family, I’m sure your girlfriend will love it.”

He smirked, as if he could see how close she was to snapping. And revelled in it. “Well, that sounds great, all I need to do now is to find a wife.”

“Oh, so there’s no one…”

“Oh, there’s someone,” he said. “There has been for a long time. She just doesn’t know it, yet.”

Elizabeth felt a lump developing in her throat, her heart racing like a bird in a cage. “Well, I’m sure she’s a very special girl.”

“She is, but I’m not really interested in girls.” He closed the gap, his big hand moving to gently rest on her denim encased thigh. “I prefer more mature women. Women who know what they want and how to get it.”

She wanted him.

Wanted to touch him, taste him, bite him.

Wanted to lick her way down those delicious abs, tear those damn jeans off with her teeth, and suck his big fucking cock until-

He kissed her hungrily, all heat and instinct.

BLOG TOUR // The Vanity of Roses



The Vanity of Roses
by Lily White



Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: March 25, 2020

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50731598-the-vanity-of-roses







The Vanity of Roses is a fast-paced, twisty and totally captivating read.


With a Lily White book I know I’m always guaranteed a great read, yet no two books ever seem to be the same. The Vanity of Roses is a dark tinged romantic suspense, packed full of intrigue, secrets and lies. Manipulation is rife and this enemies-to-lovers romance kept me on the edge of my seat unable to put the book down.


Whilst Lisbeth should have been a dislikable character, she wasn’t, so her childhood behaviour was a little puzzling. Of course as the many complex layers of this story were slowly revealed, we began to get a better picture of just what had happened in the past and why. Callan was much easier to like, though there were times when his treatment of Lisbeth made him seem quite cruel. Though again there were reasons.


It’s a dual pov book, clearly labelled so you know who’s “voice” you are hearing and is written first person. This enabled me to really connect with and understand both main characters. There is a lot of foreshadowing and I did guess one twist in advance, but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment in any way. I loved how you weren’t sure who to trust and who was telling what lies, you really need your wits about you when reading this one! The suspense, at times, was nerve shredding.


The writing is so eloquent and poetic, creating striking visuals and eliciting a myriad of emotions. Lily White doesn’t just write a story, she constructs a living, breathing creation that absorbs your soul and challenges all your perceptions. There were secondary and even tertiary characters who had more depth and personality than some authors imbue in their main characters. Along with a complex plot, this ensures a rich tapestry of a story.


Whilst I enjoyed every single word I did feel that, at times, as though the pace slowed a little. Every scene was well written, but just a couple of times I felt as though they were not adding anything more to the story.


I massively enjoyed the book and definitely recommend it.




Blurb: 

Callan Rose.

That hadn’t always been his name.

When we were children, he was nothing more than a servant boy in my family.

He was an amusement to me. 

A nobody. 

A weak soul who refused to fight back.

It was so easy to take advantage. 

But then my father died, and I was stolen. The family moved on without me. Until I was penniless with no place to go.

I returned to the Rose Estate not knowing Callan was the head of it.

He’d honed his body and temper in the underground fighting ring. The scars only made him more beautiful. 

Now I’m trapped by a seductively dark man who has nothing but vengeance running through his veins.

I’d always wanted him to fight back, but you know what they say:

Be careful what you wish for.

Totally consuming! I got lost in Callan and Lisbeths twisted love story. Callan is the ultimate bully worth fighting (or submitting) for.

The Vanity of Roses does not disappoint. It is everything I needed. It’s dark and violent, sexy and suspenseful.

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51180445-the-danger-you-know



Blurb: 

You’ll judge me.

Hate me and tell me I’m wrong.

Refuse to see how my darkness is what she needs.

While I don’t particularly care about your feelings in the matter, and while I pursue her despite the wedding bells that rang for another, only I can see how she is drowning beneath mediocrity.

How many times must I remind her?

It can’t matter that I am the person who ruined her life.

The man who killed her father.

The constant shadow that watches her sleep.

The lover who prefers dirty alleyways to freshly laundered sheets

She’s mine. Always has been. 

I’m the worst thing for her, yet I’m the only salvation she knows.

He had his chance to make her happy.

He failed.

He didn’t see how she was dying inside because he couldn’t know her.

Not like I know her.

I am her stalker.

Her protector.

And the only man that can bring her back to life.

Hell hath no fury like a demon back from the dead.

Rosemary McGuire thought the past was dead. Unfortunately, she’s dead wrong…because it’s standing on her doorstep, very much alive. But this time, Caleb Lockwood’s target isn’t the hidden hard drive with the footage that proves demons are real. His target is Rosemary.

When Will Gordon comes home to find Rosemary gone, he trusts his instincts and reaches out to a network of friends forged in the fires of too many demon battles. Soon he, Michael, Audrey, and Glynis are casting supernatural nets far and wide in a desperate search.

Description automatically generated






Blurb: 

Twenty-three-year-old Briar Pryce has earned a little rest and relaxation. She’s rescued her best friend from being transformed into a cat and stopped a war in the Poisoned Apple, New York City’s hidden neighborhood of counterfeit curses and fairy tale trickery. All Briar wants is to have a carb-filled brunch, gossip over a couple of mead-mosas, and maybe figure out if she’s actually in a love triangle with her high-school crush and her strait-laced business partner.

But relaxing is hard when the city starts screaming.

Some malevolent curse has invaded the dreams of the sleeping princesses across the Apple, spreading nightmares and violence throughout the city. What’s worse, a militant new faction of knights has used the chaos to grab power and trap Briar’s community in its authoritarian grip. If Briar’s going to be able to free the princesses and stop these fairy tale fascists, she’s going to have to solve a deeper mystery: the origins of her own uncontrollable, emotion-altering powers. Briar and her friends will journey from the depths of the enchanted Afterwoods to the penthouses of the Upper East Side to stop the knights, wake the princesses, and save the Poisoned Apple.

And hopefully still fit in that brunch.

Excerpt: 

“Do you want to escape here? I can help you.” Dex wanted out of this place.
        Nash smiled, “Yes, but now is not the time. We have to wait for her to hatch. I need her for a successful escape. It’s why I implanted a song in the guard’s mind to put her with me.”
        “You manipulated my friend Trey?” Dex wiped a hand down his face. This guy Nash was dangerous. Dex could feel it, only now, Dex felt it was time to stop trying to be the nice guy. He would survive. Finding a way to say his family would start with getting out of here, even if making a deal with this little devil would do it.
        Nash lifted an eyebrow, “I hummed him a tune.”
        “Whatever. You want my help getting out of here? I’m offering as long as we go our separate ways.”
        “I will take your willing help.” Nash cocked his head to the side, “Although, if I wanted it, I could make you give it, you know.”
        Dex crossed his arms over his chest, “Isn’t a free give better?”
        “Oh, it is. What will you give me for helping you get free?”
        Dex frowned, “Give you? I got nothing.”
        “Everyone has…something.”
        “What are you? I like to know what kind of creature I’m bargaining with.” Dex didn’t want to give this imp anything.
        “I am many things, yet in part, not a human like you.”
Dex caught a hint of regret in his tone. Dex could swear Nash had a hungry gleam in his eye. Trey had warned him that Nash was pied piper and Rumpelstiltskin. Dex knew the pied piper had something to do with music. He had no idea what a Rumpelstiltskin was, and he had a feeling he shouldn’t mention it to Nash.
       “You need to tell me specifically what you want before I can agree to anything.”
        One side of Nash’s lip kicked up. “Her. The pixie-human. Give me her.”
        Dex frowned, then scratched his head. Why would Nash ask him to give up the pixie-human? The girl wasn’t his to give, he didn’t even know what it looked like.
        “Not mine to give.”
        Nash shrugged, “Then I won’t help either of you.”

Blurb: 

Let me share some wisdom with you. There is evil in this world we cannot see. Not because it is hidden from us, but because our minds refuse to accept its existence. Once we are able to get past what everyone says should not be, it becomes our responsibility to stop the evil we now see. 

This insight wasn’t given to me until a year after I lost the most important person in my life: Bryce Rowan. Now, after another death at the same spot where he died—the overlook, where the mysterious lights dance amongst the trees—I begin to wonder if they were accidents after all. Lucky for me, I’m not the only curious one in town. Cooper, a ghost hunter (aka chaser), and his sister Jada have moved to town and are starting to ask questions. 

The more we uncover about my town, it’s history, and some of its current residents – people I have known my whole life – the more I begin to think there are those who would rather keep the evil lurking around town a secret. Even if it means more will die.
