Honor McKinnon knows she is broken. Her body and soul had been shattered by a violent attack years ago, and no one…not her sisters or anyone else in the tiny town of Paradise, especially the Sheriff…can change that. Rather than dealing with her wounds, she chooses to protect herself from any further damage, even if that means that she avoids the one chance at love. But Zeke is determined to break down Honor’s walls…and to find the persons responsible for hurting her and make them suffer. 

He’s already killed for her once…and is willing to do it again if it means she’ll know safety and happiness. 
What happens when Zeke refuses to allow Honor to ignore her past? Will Zeke’s love be passionate enough to break down her barriers? And can Zeke save Honor when her life is in danger once again? 

Join Sarah O’Rourke in this epic culmination of the Men of the McKinnon Sisters stories…and find out how the Passion in Paradise series is always scorching hot! Standalone, romantica suspense.

Man of Honor – Excerpt
“Not necessarily, but I wouldn’t mind,” Zeke replied truthfully.  “Honor, darlin, you’re a gorgeous woman.”
“Not without my clothes,” she mumbled, bending her head to stare at her clenched fists.  “Ugly,” she muttered.  “I’m ugly.”
Tensing, Zeke’s jaw clenched.  “I don’t know why the hell you’re saying that, but there’s not a single ugly thing about you.  Not when you’re naked.  Not when you’re tryin’ to bring yourself to release.  Not ever, Honor Grace.  You do not ever have to be ashamed of your body.”
Honor slowly lifted her mortified gaze to him.  “You’ve never seen me without my clothes, Zeke.  There are scars.  So many scars.  They’re raised and bumpy.  Some are red and raw.  It’s disgusting, Ezekiel.”
“Bullshit.  Every single one of those marks remind me of one thing, Honor.  One,” he growled, holding up a finger between them.  “You lived.  You survived.  When all the odds were stacked against you, you defied modern medicine and every one of those damned doctors predictions, and you lived.  And all those scars will ever do is remind me of how lucky I am to still have you.  Don’t you ever tell me you’re ugly because you’re the most beautiful thing in my world.  You wanna be scared to share your body with me because of what happened to you?  I get that.  I can accept that.  But worrying about some marks on your flesh?  I love you, baby, but that’s insane.”
Honor stared at him a long time, gauging his sincerity.  “It doesn’t feel silly,” she finally grumbled.
“You need to reassess your feelings then because I assure you, it’s one of the silliest concerns you ever had.  Christ, baby, how long have you been agonizing of a worry as pointless as your scars?” he asked, shoving a frustrated hand through his dark hair.  “I could have put these fears to rest ages ago, Honor, if I’d known about it.”
“It’s hard to talk about,” she revealed in a low voice as her head twisted to look at him.
“Yeah?  Is feeling like shit alone better than talking it over together with me?” he returned calmly, reaching up to tenderly tuck her hair behind one ear.  “Baby, you gotta start getting this.  When you hurt, I hurt.  When you suffer, I suffer right along with you.  Don’t make either one of us feel that way needlessly, Kitten.  Just talk to me.  I know you have scars.  You’ve got them on your body, and you’ve got them on your soul.  I’ve sat by your hospital bed too many times to count and watched you while you did your damnedest to heal them both.  Those wounds are not new information to me and they don’t change shit.  I still love you, and I don’t allow those scars to do anything other than remind me to treasure every day I have with you.  Okay?”
Honor’s eyes were soft as they locked with Zeke’s.  “You really do love me a lot, don’t you?” she asked in a small voice.

“So much that I ache with it, Honor.”


Sarah O’Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who have taken their passion for romantic fiction and erotica to the publishing world. Born and raised in the southern United States, one lives near Louisville, KY, while the other resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Neither is ever very far from a tall glass of sweet iced tea, their dog-eared copies of Gone With the Wind, or their Steel Magnolias DVDs!


Formerly an accountant and a chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children, their husbands…and writing about love in every way possible!

My name is Hanley Harper—for now—and I’m the anti-heroine of this story.
Revenge is my fuel; it energizes me when I’m running on empty.

Elias Cari is a tool for retribution and the beginning of the new start. Unbeknownst to him, there is more to me than I will ever show him. He will know exactly who I am when it’s too late—when I’m done with him.

I’m quickly closing in on the the perfect place to avenge the crimes committed against my family. The place where Elias is least likely to expect an enemy to be.
Beneath him.

A problem hits me unexpectedly.
Elias has become a welcome addiction, and I’ve become his obsession. He won’t stop exerting control over me until I’ve become his exclusive possession.

How can so many things go wrong and feel so right?

My plan is damned…or is it?

As I clip clopped through this trip of mind altering twisty dark dimensions I knew I could never be able to do justice for a review in which it should be recognized. So many layers to Elias, and yet so many more in Hanley and her completely warped family’s past.

I’m not sure if there is one word that would define this story’s evolution other than making up my own and that’s just Fuck Hot! So many levels of depravity and deviant secrets and lies that come out and completely shatter your faith in family, friends, honesty, and trust, however the epitome of a good strong honest alpha male book boyfriend is ELIAS.

Each and every character in this story plays and important key to unraveling the suspense, and thrilling mystery in the make. The author has a strong grasp on penning each detail about them that’s just an integral part to bringing this haunting tale into fruition. Once you think you have it all down to Hanley’s deranged family history you start to see the cracks in the make up of Elias’s deceitful family history, and oh what malfunction!

storm-lightning_00262963

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I’m not innocent.
I haven’t been for a very long time.
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.
Vanished.

I never even had a choice.
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.
Until now.
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

Absolutely left my heart shattered! Thrilling, intense, a super duper psychotic villainess with all the sexy steamy times you would need to heat up the darkest corners of purgatory. Each and everyone of these characters are portrayed and so well written, you KNOW them, and you feel them!

Revenge, vengeance, retribution, and retaliation are just some of the things you will find right here in this fascinating mind frack of a highly enriching journey. It’s a super dark and twisted tale of what happens when foster children are entrusted in the system of the damned, forgotten, abused and nobody cares!

The game has changed.

What a super trippy mind warp this brilliantly woven tale of a tortured hero reliving his horrible past even as he finds a tormented heroine trying to forget hers. Together they find forgetting, forgiving and moving on so much more easier in the arms of each other.

I adored this Dark-ly intense romance with hints of mystery, passion and woe, thrills and chills, and some pretty extreme villains you cannot help but laugh in delight at their demise! I highly recommend it for any and all lovers of a semi dark romance without all the blood, guts and gore of violence or rape themes, instead pick it up and fall into lust with all things Braxton Kennedy!

The real eye opener is the first page when I read Braxton saying goodbye to his current “toy”, Swan. Now this could mean several things: Six feet under or Moving on, either in this life or the next. My heart rate escaladed rapidly in the next chapter as Braxton finds, buys and cleans up his new “toy”, Bunny a.k.a. Jessica. Imagine my surprise when I am totally addicted to Braxton’s darky kinks and savage acts of sweetness, he oozes complete sex appeal and I am hooked and charmed right out of my poor wool bronco socks.

Poor Bunny, my blood boils for the atrocious abuse this woman has went through, however I cannot help but crow in pride and delight when she continues to push forward, her hardship has only made her stronger and her strength makes her a survivor.

**Sparrow is a standalone, full-length novel. It contains graphic violence and adult situations some may find offensive.**

Troy Brennan

Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heart-throb with steel-blue eyes. “The Fixer” who can make or break you in this city.

Oh, and my new husband.

Sparrow Raynes

That’s me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life.
But then he caged me.
Kidnapped me.
And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up.
Put simply, Troy Brennan clipped my wings.

I have dreams, big ones, but I doubt he’ll ever let me chase them. I have no idea why he decided to take me as his wife. But I do know this: pissing off this man will not do me any good. At all.

I must confess I have a highly obsessive craving for mafia/cartel themed stories that boarder on an intensely addictive personality disorder and thank gawd I found Sparrow! This one was so richly detailed with tons of suspense in each chapter, with each lie, with each covered secret, and with each and every clever deceitful undisclosed deception being ripped apart at the seams.

This Author knows how to create an action packed web of lies that shroud these characters so well you don’t know what book boyfriend to root for. I mean one moment I’m all for Brock and his Romeo, white chromed, mega watt smile and in the next moment I’m all #TeamTroy, the Fixer, the Don, the Capo, THE BLACK HAIRED DEVIL who has me forever. The many twists and turns had me constantly turning the pages at Mach 1 like a junkie seeking her next hit. It was quick, sexy, sweet, funny, intense, emotional, hateful and loving all wrapped up in a juicy all sense overloaded joy ride!

I did adore Sparrow, my little red birdie, sorta like an anti-social, anti-heroine, who packed quite a punch, never backed down, never wavered from her goals and fought her battles well. She was sweet, fun, sexy and brilliant, she kicked a$$ and sucked the love out of the deep dark cavity some would say was a heart from her monster. Lucky lady! 

SexyWords1

What a ride! Loved the shite out of every minute of this sorta arranged marriage from a couple that learned to love each other, that never gave up on each other who lived together, who grew to adore each other and their idiosyncrasies, lies, secrets and revealing betrayals.

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit.
They lie.

For 21 days she held on.
But on Day 22, she would have given anything for the sweet slumber of death.
Because on Day 22, she realizes that her only way out means certain death for one of the two men she loves.

A haunting tale of passion, loss, and redemption, The Paper Swan is a darkly intense yet heartwarming love story, textured with grit, intrigue, and suspense. Please note: This is NOT a love triangle.

I wept, I laughed myself silly, I wanted revenge, I wanted to rewind time, I wanted vengeance and I wanted a romance to deem worthy of a hall of fame-r. I found everything I wanted and more in this intense action/thriller/suspense/romance, mafia/cartel style!

This story had me so captivated, the compelling chapters were so unique and thrilling, so utterly original and the only thing I hated so much was those two words. THE END! This book boyfriend was extremely dangerous, alpha, sexy, tender, sensitive and hurt way down deep in his soul, you cannot help but long to see his redemption and hope that it starts to heal his beautiful soul.  The twists and turns this one takes will have your head spinning!

Beautiful Dark Souls: BBF’s/BGF’s

Jack was simply amazing, the brightest true hero I have ever read about, never ever strayed from his path to serve, protect, and love his brother for years. My heart bleed and shriveled up to nothing for the injustice and betrayal this man received. To see him rise above in all his glory to fight back, find himself, and seek revenge in the most satisfying way left me absolutely captivated.

86412f21edc31b2c4654c1f27b706c22[1]

The impact River, the true heroine in this tale, tries and succeeds in bringing awareness for the atrocious acts of human abuse in the slave trade.  This opens our eyes and it will forever haunt us all and maybe, just maybe heal a few souls and cause a ripple effect to help put monsters forever to rest in purgatory.

I adored this wonderful story packed full of emotion. A tale of self discovery, redemption, and vengeance! I swear 2 pages in and I have filthy fat tears plopping all over, just emotional overload, everything from laughter to pure horror.

Tangled Hearts Release and Review * Author Sarah O’Rourke

 

banner

cover

teaser

Army Strong has a mission….to protect Southern Sassy at all costs.

The directive had been clear: Deeply embed himself in the fair town of Paradise, Tennessee, and keep one Melody Song Reardon from forgiving her fornicating ex-fiancé and keep her safe by any means necessary. Fortunately, Retired First Sergeant Callum Valentine had always been a man that got the job done. Unfortunately, nobody told him that while his ‘job’ might be as pretty as a picture, she could be ornery as a wet cat and had a stubborn streak a mile long. Now, he was battling baristas and dodging would-be assassins in an effort to keep one sultry southern minx safe.

He’d thought the Taliban would be the most dangerous force he ever face. Imagine his surprise when he realized that the radical extremists had nothing on one curvy little woman with a wicked edge to her tongue…. a woman that had somehow tangled herself around his cold heart.

★✩★

Melody Song Reardon was done with men. After learning that the man she’d been going to marry was no better than a corporate Casanova in and out of the boardroom and bedroom, she’d decided that love just wasn’t in the cards for her. Which was fine. She was young, smart, and capable… and better yet, she had a dream and a plan: Opening her very own book/yarn store – Hooks & Books. She had the brains. She had the building. And now, she had a freaking bodyguard compliments of her interfering older brother?

She didn’t care how mouthwateringly handsome her so-called savior was; she didn’t need another controlling man in her life telling her what to do. At least, she hadn’t needed one…. until those nerve wracking hang-ups and strange notes took an ominous turn. Now, somebody wants her dead and the only thing standing between her and the Grim Reaper is one seriously gorgeous man named Callum Valentine. Falling in love again in the middle of her own personal apocalypse hadn’t been the plans…then again, the great thing about a plan is that it can change on a dime!

Excerpt

Cal watched her another minute. “You’re a stubborn little ball of fury, aren’t you?” he asked as he watched her try to attach the tool to the lug nut, wincing as the metal slipped for the second time in a row.

Melody took a deep breath before she slowly turned to face her tormenter. “I was brought up believing that a girl should be able to take care of herself. I forgot that lesson for a little while and almost made a mistake I could never undo with a man I’d rather forget. I’m not ever going to repeat that experience again. So, to answer your question, yes, I’m a stubborn little ball of fury. Now, will you please go on your merry way?”

Cal finally gave into the urge and laughed, earning himself a cold look from the woman currently on her knees. “Careful, Princess. I’m gonna get a complex here because it’s beginning to feel like you don’t like me very much,” he taunted her with a wink. Seeing her press her lips together tightly, he knew she was fighting the urge to scream bloody murder at him. Squatting beside her, he met her fiery gaze. “Cat got your tongue, Pretty Girl?”

“No,” she declared with a shake of her head as she looked from him to his jacked up truck. “Do you mind if I ask you a question?”

“Ask away, darlin’,” he invited silkily with a ready nod. “I’m an open book,” he declared, holding his muscular arms out to his sides. And it was true. The book on him was open; it just happened to be written in code, he thought to himself as he gave himself a mental pat on the back for his own wittiness.

Melody offered him a deceptively sweet smile. “Is it true that men use big trucks to compensate for smaller endowments in, well,… other more intimate areas?” she asked, dropping her voice to a conversational whisper as she gave his crotch a rather pointed look.

Cal guffawed. “Are you asking me if I’ve got a tiny dick, Princess? Because I can tell you with a hundred percent honesty that the size of my cock and the size of my truck are very directly related. They’re both big and bad, but if you don’t believe me, I’d be pleased to give you a private showing.”

Melody’s jaw dropped at his audacity. “You… you just can’t say things like that!” she blustered, blushing furiously as he laughed in her face.

“I just did. Besides, you started it,” he accused, propping his hands on his narrow hips as he leaned forward and stared her down. “Don’t dish it out if you can’t handle having it spoon-fed back to you, Princess.” Damn, Cal privately mused, he hadn’t had this much fun with a woman with her clothes on in years. He couldn’t help wondering how exciting she’d be with her clothes off. He definitely be making it a point to find that out as soon as humanly possible.

“I revert to my earlier statement. You are a pig,” she reiterated with a disgusted shake of her head, her ponytail flying over one shoulder to smack him in the face as she moved.

“Maybe, but you’re just mad that you can’t seem to get one-up on me. Not used to a man that will stand his ground and fight with you?” he asked, fishing for a response from her. He wanted to know just how much she’d reveal about her ex-fiancé in casual conversation. Her brother didn’t think there’d been any kind of physical abuse and based on her reactions to him, he tended to think RJ was right, but he wanted to be sure. Because if he was wrong, she wouldn’t need his protection because he’d simply kill the motherfucker and be done with it.

“My former fiancé didn’t fight. It was too low-class a thing for him to do. He used to call our arguments spirited debates. My ass, they were debates. Freaking moron. A fight is a fight, right?” she asked as she grunted with exertion while she tried to pry one of the lug nuts loose.

“Right,” he agreed with a nod, sighing as her tool slipped again. “Politicians have….what did you call ‘em? Spirited debates? Real men and women fight.”

“See, that’s what I thought, too. But maybe that was the problem,” Melody muttered as she twisted the tire iron sharply, silently cursing the tight bolt. “I always did think Bradley had political ambitions. God knows that it’s what his dear old mommy and daddy wanted for him,” she continued to growl through gritted teeth as she twisted the tire iron violently. “Eureka!” she shouted when the bolt moved a few millimeters. “Did you see that? It moved,” she yelped, as her body made a tiny celebratory shimmy.

Cal chuckled softly at her little dance. “Sounds like this Bradley fella was kinda a douche,” he surmised, carefully watching Melody’s face.

“That is the understatement of the frickin’ year. Heck, maybe the decade, too,” Melody muttered, lifting one hand to take a swipe at her sweaty forehead.

Edging toward her, Cal tried to make a grab for the tool in her hand. “Seriously, babe. Let me do that for you,” he demanded gruffly, afraid she was going to either damage the wheel well or herself with her rough use of the tool.

“I’m about done warnin’ you, Stranger, so I’ll try and be real clear one last time. You try to touch my tire iron again and I’m gonna introduce it to the side of that hard head of yours. Repeatedly,” she informed him grimly while she desperately tried to loosen the second lug nut. “And, for the record, let me just state that I am most certainly NOT your babe,” she huffed, panting with exertion.

He could see her energy waning and shook his head. “You’re completely right, you aren’t my babe,” he agreed, covering Melody’s icy hands with his as she growled fiercely at the tire. “Right now, you’re more of my pain in the ass, woman,” he continued, his hands tightening on hers as he helped her turn the lug nut. “This’d be so much easier if you’d just let me do it,” he stated again, afraid he was going to hurt her hand by squeezing it too hard. “Honest to God, sassy, sweet and stubborn is not the sexy combination I thought it would be on you.”

Rellik Bentley is to die for.

He can have any woman he wants and they will do anything to be with him. He uses and abuses them like drugs and tosses them out with the trash. The only thing he gives a f*ck about is his music. That is, until Ella Lighten walks into his life and stumbles upon one of his darkest secrets. In the midst of doing damage control, he begins to obsess over the mysterious woman who wants absolutely nothing to do with him.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the White Trash Trilogy, The Note, Perfect Lie, Pretty Little Things, Honor series and Safe Word.
Biography
I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney’s Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn’t resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I’d like to tell you a story.

5 roses dark romance + unique creative writing

If you’re looking for a dark romance with plenty of twisty turns, look no further for you have just been transported into the fantastic dark realm of a mind-bending thriller.  This Author knows how to dial up the drama-meter and create a scrumptious “killer” BBF!   
This thrilling tale had everything I wanted a needed in a tale chalked full of lust, real-life drama,  betrayal, revenge, two lost, troubled loveable souls and dirty deeds avenged tenfold! 

cf1b34877443a8fced2e0f7745590ee8[1]

5 thump-thud hearts damaged couples finding love 

These two characters were such dark tortured soulsone could not help but feel their heart bleed for the both of them.  The atrocious acts committed upon Ella had me literally consumed with hatred for the vile lunatic crippling her emotionally and physically.  Ryder reigned supreme as a luscious hero, his past consumed his thoughts and held him back from moving forward to a promising future full of talent and a heart full of love forever searching for someone to give it to.

5 carnal lips hot and spicy scenes 

Holy smoking stars above this Author creates sexy scenes that leave your lips chapped and your bum wiggling around seeking for some sorta relief!  The chemistry between this book hero and heroine is nearly instantaneous and absolutely believable as they both try to hold back secrets, their bodies both betray them in the end.

720c333ef5745767a615e75a69d85d2d[1]

5 tears emotional drama 

The story has such a emotional impact on ones psyche that you had better be ready for some real life outrage to abusers everywhere for these crimes will not go on without some sort of punishment!   Someone, somewhere is coming for you.  Thank You Teresa Mummert for bringing awareness to these evil deeds and doers out there! 

I’m emotionally spent, my mind is completely bent, and my soul has a dent for Mr. Bently!  I love him, truly, madly deeply!
