How can you feel safest with the person who has hurt you the most?
REVIEW


5 stars from Gabrielle Sally!

“THICKER THAN BLOOD is another amazing story by Anne Marie Citro…As the summary will tell you, Dakota is in a car accident that could have killed her if it wasn’t for the fast response of EMT and ex-boyfriend, Caden. From there the ball is instantly rolling taking you on a bit of a Rube Goldberg ride as readers are forced to navigate the emotional ups and downs of everything that happens. Told in a mix of present and flashback, we are given the highlights of the developing relationship between Dakota and Caden and it is both sweet and sexy…”

Terrence O’Connor knew all his flaws only too intimately, knew no woman could ever accept the sins of his past, knew he’d die alone. Su-Lin Taylor barges into his world and none of that matters anymore.

When Su-Lin’s mother dies, she discovers she has an uncle and aunt, a rich Hong Kong couple who whisk her away to Europe on a fairytale graduation trip. They promise to establish a trust fund for her, which means she’ll never have to worry about money again. Their first stop is France at an exclusive boutique hotel fronting the Mediterranean.

A silly mistake pits a naked Terry with a nude Su-Lin in the men’s steam room. Totally smitten, Terry manipulates Su-Lin’s uncle into a three-week cruise aboard his luxury yacht, the Glory.

Or so Terry thinks…

Adjoining cabins with a connecting door results in explosive sex. Su-Lin and Terry can’t keep their hands off each other, which so upsets her uncle he collapses with chest pains. A guilty Su-Lin insists on secrecy.

Mere days later, Terry finds Su-Lin unconscious. Hospital tests point to attempted murder.

Who’s trying to kill Su-Lin and why?

#TRRparty #Featured #Book Time Eternal by Lily Morgan

Link: Amazon

Time Eternal is the story of Skyla Gray, a TSCAA agent in the present day, and Rei Dusan, the crown prince of the sixteenth-century Serbian Empire, who has traded his soul to the gods so he can travel through time to find his one true love, Elizabeth Magini.

The story opens with Agent Gray time-ported to an underground bank vault. Her mission is to retrieve a device, but someone else has gotten there first. More maddening is that she recognizes this man’s voice even though she cannot remember ever having met him before. Sent back to the present day by this stranger, she finds the life she knew slowly beginning to unravel…and learns that the stranger is not the only one who has been looking for her these past five centuries.

At the Last Battle, Rei Dusan lay dying alongside his father, his brothers, and his countrymen, when a handmaiden from the gods offered him a bargain: his soul and his eternal pledge to do the gods’ bidding in exchange for immortality. With his life, he will avenge his family, his country, and his beloved Elizabeth, who sacrificed her life to save his. He accepted the bargain with the gods only to later discover Elizabeth did not perish in the fire.

Will Skyla remember who she really is? What Rei meant to her—to Elizabeth? Will she accept Rei in her present life, where she is no longer a helpless young girl needing rescue from an evil Medici lord, but an ass-kicking agent fighting terrorists for a living? And how will Rei answer to the gods when they find out he has defied their orders? Will there be a happily ever after for Rei and Skyla?

Time Eternal is the first book of the Time series, which tells the story of the men and women who are part of a secret government agency, fighting not garden-variety terrorists but the gods and their enemies, who are facing off in a final showdown. Should their wars not be contained, the world will go up in flames—literally.

One thing’s for certain: this girl totally throws him off his game.

Can he convince her what they shared that night was the real thing and he’s here to stay? Or will he once again lose the woman he’s spent years longing for?
