Star Dust
By: Ali Winters

A case of mistaken identity triggers a reign of terror.

A Star Princess of Soleis, bound by tradition, is forced to fulfill an arrangement made prior to her birth. During the masque for her coronation, Oriana meets a handsome stranger, but soon finds out he is not who she thought.

Prince Lucian, unfamiliar with the treaties of the Universe, must restore the reputation of his world and prove his kingdom is not behind the attacks.

No one knew an innocent mistake could lead to the destruction of the solar system. Worlds are conquered, lives torn apart, and destruction reigns, while Oriana, unknowingly, holds the key to salvation.

Now, a Princess who needs saving must save herself, the man she loves, as well as the rest of the Universe, before it is destroyed beyond repair.

{ Wildest Dream by R.C. Boldt }

Wildest Dream
By: RC Boldt
Genre: Romance

~ Synopsis ~
The Teach Me series starts off with the story of Raine and Mac, the most unlikely of best friends…

Taken from his parents and bounced from one foster home to the next, former Navy SEAL turned math teacher, Callum “Mac” Mackenzie had a rough childhood. The only time he’s let himself get attached to anyone has been with his military “brothers”. He’s convinced he doesn’t know how to love and certainly doesn’t “do” relationships. He’s spent fourteen years in the Navy and now he gets to live out his other dream: teaching.

Her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, science teacher, Raine Thompson feels as if her time to find “the one” is running out. She knows life is short, especially after dealing with breast cancer two years ago, and wants to experience her own happily ever after. But is it in the cards for her?

Finally acting on the simmering attraction they have long ignored, Raine and Mac decide to have a fling and they discover what it’s like to have someone who knows you inside out also be the one who makes your body come alive.

But it was only temporary…

~ Within The Pages Review ~
I truly loved getting to know Raine and Mac!!!

Wildest Dream is a sweet, sexy, laugh out loud book about friends becoming more!  Raine and Mac were nothing but adorable together - very relatable to real life situations that everyone could or does go through. I enjoyed the banter back and forth between them and also between their friends when everyone got together.  I laughed, got mad a couple of times and even felt like I was right there singing along to Karaoke with everyone.  

In Wildest Dream, both Raine and Mac feel like they aren't worthy enough to find "the one".  They quickly become Best Friends learning everything about each other all along ignoring the chemistry that flows between them.  Until that one night when things change and they give in to the attraction.  One is looking for forever and the other says no to relationships. Wildest Dreams, is an endearing love story about two people trying to overcome obstacles in there lives to find true love.
  R.C. Boldt did a fabulous job drawing you into the story from page one!

I truly enjoyed reading Wildest Dreams and can't wait for the next book!

by Wynter S.K. 

A gifted dancer with a traumatic past...

Sammi Carnevale relocates with her family in hopes of putting a nightmare behind her. Although the change of scenery helps rekindle her lifelong passion for ballet, she still feels broken. Until, disguised as a man and flying under the radar, she begins working out at the local legendary boxing club, Ronan’s Gym, and starts to reclaim her power. But when a confrontation with some disrespectful clientele reveals her true identity, she can’t hide anymore—especially not from co-owner and hometown war hero Cillian Ronan, to whom she is instantly attracted and terrified of.

After the suicide of a close Army buddy and dealing with the corrupt businessman that holds half his father’s gym, Cillian Ronan is out of options to support his younger sister, a struggling single mother, until an invitation to compete in a MMA tournament with a huge prize on the line is extended. But when he realizes that the skinny, quiet kid from his gym is really a beautiful young woman in disguise, he puts his own problems aside to focus on her. She’s an enigma to him, one that he desperately wants to figure out, but instead of letting him in, she holds him at arm’s length.

Until one night, when the truth finally comes out.

Sammi finds freedom in her journey to heal, gradually opening up to Cillian more and more. But will she ever be able to fully trust him? Or will her fear of being hurt again keep her away from him?

{ Protecting Caroline by Susan Stoker }

Protecting Caroline
By: Susan Stoker

**Protecting Caroline is a stand-alone love story.
 It’s Book 1 in the SEAL of Protection Series.** 

Matthew “Wolf” Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn’t have to do it very often. He’d been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside. 

When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she’d ever seen. She also never expected he’d be so easy to talk to. She knew he’d never be interested in talking to her if he hadn’t been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride. 

Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she’d see, or need, Wolf, she’d be sorely mistaken. 

Start the SEAL of Protection Series with Caroline and Wolf's story 

~ Review by Within The Pages ~

First off I want to start off by saying what an amazing story Protecting Caroline is.  I went into the book not really knowing what to expect and was blown away!

A friend of mine actually recommended Protecting Caroline to me - she sent me a message on Facebook with a link saying "Download this book girl! I love the series!"  Well knowing that she and I have the almost same tastes in books I One-Clicked the book without even reading the description.  Let me tell you I was not disappointed at all.  Loved every minute of the book.

Matthew a.k.a. the dominating, protective and sweet Alpha Male that I think everyone will want to have in their life.  Oh and did I forget to mention that he is a Navy Seal - so freaking hot!

Caroline a.k.a. the awkward, shy and gorgeous but doesn't think she is a gorgeous girl that I think every woman can relate to in some fashion or another.

In Protecting Caroline, Matthew and Caroline's lives collide together under extraordinary circumstances and from there their relationship continued to develop through amazing twists, turns and all around shockable moments (can't give away more without posting spoilers).  Let me just say I was on my toes reading this book and holding my breathe a time or two as well!

Ultimately, having trust, faith and love for someone can help you get through the most difficult of difficult situations and I think both Matthew and Caroline proved that.

I am so glad this book was recommended to me and I plan on reading the rest of the series one right after another!  Shhh.....don't let me husband know that I already One-Clicked and downloaded the entire series!!!

A definite 5+++ Star Read - if you haven't read it yet what are you waiting for?

{ Royal Savage by Victoria Ashley }

Royal Savage
By: Victoria Ashley

I CAN’T CLOSE MY EYES… I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it - almost taste it, bringing me back to that night.
It doesn't matter that I'm still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me.

The only thing I long for is to fucking fade away. I've given up. Until her at least…
AVALON.  She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass. It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and fuck her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of... me.  Once she sees the damage that I’m capable of; she’ll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear.

HIS EYES... THE DARKNESS IN them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him… and save him. I shouldn't have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right.

ROYAL is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him… breathe him in.

He’s savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother…
He's hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I'm afraid that he’s already too faded…

Review from Within The Pages:
Where to begin...this is my second book that I've read by Victoria Ashley and will definitely not be my last.  I was left with a complete Book Hangover!.  Royal Savage takes you on an emotional roller coaster where one is trying to figure out how to love and feel again after so much tragedy and loss!  I laughed, cried and was left shocked a time or two.  There are many twists and turns that will leave you wanting to know more!
Royal Savage is a story that broke my heart and left me speechless.  I was pulled into the story at the prologue and was held captive all day long until the end.  I read Royal Savage in one day - couldn't put the book down and was so upset when it was over.
Victoria Ashley you have me falling in love with the Cocky, Dangerous, Sexy bad boys of Savage and Ink! Royal, Blaine and Jax are each other's family and will protect those that they consider family.  Absolutely love that characteristic in a person. 

I'm not going to lie but I did have to hold my breathe a few times and continue to read with caution while waiting to see what happens.  Definitely not a lightweight read.
A 5 +++++ Star Read!!!
Can't wait for more from Victoria Ashley!
P.S. Now I need to know more about Blaine and Jax!!!  When are they getting a book?
