COVER REVEAL: RG Williamson & Phoebe Parkes' DARE TO REVEAL


BOOK TITLE: Dare to RevealSERIES: Sex, Sin and Secrets #3AUTHORS: R.G Williamson & Phoebe Parkes



It’s all gone to shit. I hate where I am but I’m so lost with absolutely no idea where to go from here. I f*cked it all up royally. You would think I had learned from my past, but no, my past slams back to haunt me at every turn and I’ve failed again. I tried, I really did but I know I f*cked up because of my stupid wild side, craving sinful pleasures that I should never have started. But out of all the things that have gone wrong, there is one thing I can put right. And I’m going to. It’s time to be the man I should have been from the beginning. I don’t want to live with these secrets hanging over me, but just how much do I reveal to keep the woman I love? Sometimes the truth isn’t pretty and my secrets definitely aren't.


I knew it was too good to be true. He was a player, a man-whore through and through and leopards don’t change their spots, do they? What is he trying to hide? His evasive behaviour is a dead giveaway that he’s not telling me the truth. Then, just when I think I know what I’m going to do, I get the shock of my life when I see Connor out with a person I never even knew existed. Was our whole relationship built on secrets? After what I stumbled across and then what I saw, I wonder how much Connor has been keeping from me. Left with no choice, I have to confront him. I need answers and I deserve answers and I will not leave until I have them this time. The question is, does he love me enough to reveal the truth? More importantly, will I survive it if he does?

R.G Williamson

I'm a happily married family man from the North of England, UK.
I like the feeling a good book gives me. I like to feel emotionally attached to the characters, I want to live their lives, I want to worry about them, laugh with them, cry with them, celebrate their achievements with them, love them, hate them, but most importantly, I want to feel something, anything. I hope you enjoy my writing style and come away from my books feeling something!

After I got over the rejection of not becoming a Bond girl, I set my goals a little lower in the world of fast cars, sexy men and bank accounts that match their crotch sizes – yes, HUGE. I decided it was about time that all these glorious characters that I dream up needed to be brought to life. So Bond’s loss is my gain, because I don’t just get stuck with one 007 I get as many as I want and I can have them as gorgeous as I want them, as sexy as they deserve or sometimes even dark and disturbing but still ultimately phoaar. (Hopefully :-) ) I mean come on, who the heck really needs to ‘bond’ with Bond eh when you can dream up a whole cast of hot, muscled, sun-kissed, drop dead gorgeous males! When you can have men that all fall at your feet, worship your creative mind… lust after your curves and swoon at your utter gorgeousness… Yeah, that doesn’t happen either, well not on the scale you’re imagining anyway, wink-wink. So, this is me, armed and dangerous, my mind honed and poised and ready with enough ammo to bring a horde of sexy mayhem. The stories in my head are finally being let loose. I apologise in advance for any loss of control, hernias or sheer frustration caused as a result of my imagination. Any legal action, (which would be completely unwarranted), should be taken up with the person who was the Bond Girl dream wrecker, in other words, it really isn’t my fault so my conscience is clear. ;-) Finally shutting up (yes me) and leaving you with a more serious thought, please sit back, relax and enjoy my over-indulgent brain cells as they go into over-drive to bring you some British shenanigans, done the Phoebe Parkes way. Enjoy :-)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


When good and evil collide, who will be left standing? Eden Cross is lonely. If she didn’t have her beloved cat, Onyx, she’d have no one at all. Eden longs for companionship, but, being a prisoner, all she gets is foul-mouthed demons and hatred from the one man she wants respect from the most. Collier Brigham is son of the King of Demons. Bitter with hatred, like his father, he’s expected to be a force to be reckoned with. He never believed love would rear its ugly head in his favor. Especially not when the woman is the daughter of the man who is to blame for the deaths of his mother and brother. She is a beautiful force of nature and he is misery personified. When secrets are revealed, can they see past the unthinkable and work together to right their wrongs?

**Onyx Unleashed is ON $ALE for 99 cents!**

 As the sun shines through the curtains, it illuminates and lands perfectly on Eden's face—the breathtaking beauty lying on the bed next to me. I fear one day, she will realize who I am. I want to only be known as her beloved Onyx. She looks at me with such warmth and love. She cares for me and I've come to care for her greatly.
Licking my fur, patting it down, I wish I could be someone else. Why couldn't have I fallen in love with someone else? With her I can love. Why does she have to be so damn beautiful? Why on all that is holy does she have to be the one who takes my breath away and make my dark heart beat again?
All of these thoughts make a growl erupt from my mouth, loud enough to wake the beauty next to me. I meow trying to soften the loud noise I just created. She smiles as she reaches for me and looks into my eyes, and it’s like she's actually looking into my soul for the first time in all these years.

In Patt's Imagination Rating: 10/10
Amazon Rating: 5/5

This was an awesome and light read. I laughed the entire time and it just kept me with a smile on my lips the whole time. Frankly, this kind of surprised me. Because I'm used to this author's work and until now I don't think I've read any book that was so easy to read. And by that I mean without the danger. There were a few moments where I held my breath but I couldn't have enjoyed this more. Once again this author proved to me why I am such a big fan of her work.

AUTHOR: Kelli Jean
SERIES: NOLA's Own Series, Book #3


“Kenna stood strong, taking my grief into herself. In that moment, if the world had truly threatened to fall, I had no doubt my Baby Girl would hold it up.”

A pillar of strength, Kenna only grows stronger as time passes. I’ve known from the beginning that I was the weak link between us. Always, she’s risen above and beyond the darkness of the unknown that threatens to suck me down. This time…I’ll have to crawl out of that darkness on my own.

“What we have—the kind of love we share—comes at a price. The universe demands it. It’s not free, and it shouldn’t be.”

So many souls make up the fabric of the music. Thousands upon thousands of years, millions of eyes and ears, hands and hearts have seen, heard, created and felt it. There’s only one who sings to me, and in the face of the unknown, I watch him lose the language of the soul. The pain and loss for Phil is so great, I have no way to bring the symphony back into his being, as he has done for me so many times.

Within me for now, for always…The Song Remains the Same.


ON SALE for $1.99 for THREE DAYS ONLY!



Amazon Rating: 5/5
In Patti's Imagination rating: 10/10

When I reviewed Over the Hills and Far Away, I saw something in Kenna which spoke to me, made me think of Diana Gabaldon's Brianna Randall Fraser MacKenzie, daughter of Claire and Jamie Fraser. Her strength of character, her convictions, her stubbornness, her appearance, all of those things reminded me of Bree. I mentioned then that I'd always loved Bree, but that I knew many devoted readers had issues with her - she wasn't 'enough' for them. By the time I'd read only 25% of The Song Remains the Same, I was struck by how easily this story could be mistaken for a (well-executed) fanfiction from a Gabaldon devotee who'd wanted a better version of Bree. What I knew that most people don't, (because I'd asked her about it when the blog reviewed book 1), is that Kelli had never read Outlander or any of its sequels before she wrote this series. That she captured so much of the same essence, not just of Bree, but of the love between her and Roger, their own epic story within Gabaldon's cannon, is uncanny.

Maybe it's my own love of epic tales, of the saga in its best form, that has me seeing a parallel to Gabaldon. Or maybe it's just that Kelli is also a truly talented writer. No, this series is not a sci-fi/romance/fantasy/historical hybrid. It is contemporary (though, as you will see in The Song Remains the Same, maybe not quite so much as you are lead to believe for much of the series), it does not involve wars or time travel, it focuses on the music business, and it is more overtly sexual. But you would expect that of a rock star story. What you would be surprised to find is that Kelli brings a depth to that genre few can truly claim. The only music-focused story I've read that digs so deep is Laurie Breton's Coming Home (and the subsequent Danny/Casey/Rob-focused books in her Jackson Falls series), but you won't find the same immersion in the rock star life (including the level of debauchery). I think that's maybe a reflection of the writer's generation more than anything. If you can stomach the sex, drugs, and language, like contemporary stories, and are a fan of either Gabaldon or Breton (or both, like me) and their storytelling, you will enjoy this series.

Be prepared for tears. Many of them. Even ones when you wouldn't expect to cry. Also expect smiles and laughs. This is an epic conclusion to the saga, after all.

In the end, I changed my mind a bit. When I read Over the Hills and Far Away, I wanted a crazy series of stories to explore all the secondary characters. And while I wouldn't mind a love story for Brian or Devon to come along at some point, I won't be as disappointed as I thought I would be in the beginning if the series does not continue. One of the best parts of this series, and why I think it's more a saga than just an epic love story about soulmates, is that this is also the story of the band. Each member gets their own side story, and we live that through the eyes of Kenna and Phil, who are childhood friends of the secondary characters. There is enough detail in this series that I don't desperately need to hear more about Lili and Lewis, Alys and X (and Connor), Jason and Sher Bear. Their stories conclude enough that you will not feel as if you're left hanging.

But if Kelli wrote those stories, I would read them. I can't wait to read whatever she writes next. I know it will be amazing. What a privilege to have jumped on this ride at the beginning.

Here's the Goodreads link to my review of No Quarter, since I didn't do so in a timely fashion (sorry, Kelli! Crazy life and all that.) 



NO QUARTER, Book #2:


Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic. Now she deals with twenty-four hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind-boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year. She’s surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor is what keeps her sane. The insane don’t know they’re insane. Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor—and don’t get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch. She gave up on that a long time ago. When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores. But she enjoys living in her own head, so that’s pretty cool. Technology terrifies her. She can barely turn on a computer, and was completely shocked when she’d actually written a book on one. To this day, she has no explanation for this baffling mystery. It took her three years to realize she can take screen shots of messages and pictures of bearded, tattooed men with her phone. Now that she’s mastered this task, her phone is slowly dying, and she’s nervous that she’s going to have to buy a new one and it will take her another three years to learn how to use it.

Copyright © Kate Benson 2015

Ever since the moment I first laid eyes on Drake Mitchell, something primal has been inside me, just below the surface. He came into my life when I least expected it, giving me things I never knew I needed before I met him.
It’s been six months since I took his hand and left everything, everyone I’ve ever known to be with him.
The decision wasn’t an easy one.
The path we took to get here was riddled with turmoil, tears and more heartache than I ever thought I could bear. However, I knew letting him walk away would leave me nothing but a mountain of regret.
Now that I’ve surrendered to him, my regrets are down to one.

Falling love with her was the easy part.
From the second I saw her staring back at me, I knew I was in trouble. Control, order, dominance… all the things I craved flew right out the window the moment her grey eyes found mine. Instantly, they were replaced with addiction, want, need...
The road we’ve traveled hasn’t been easy. In the past two years, we’ve faced more than most couples face in a lifetime, but it’s made us stronger.
She’s given me the trust I need to feed my dominant side. I’ve given her the freedom she’s always longed for, but was never able to find.
We’re finally ready to start our life together, but in a new town with new people surrounding us, will we be able to hold on to everything we’ve had up until now?
Or will the compromise we’ve made be one thing that tears us apart?


Kate Benson profile.jpg
I grew up in Texas and moved to Florida when I met the love of my life 14 years ago. I wrote my first poem when I was five and it was about my love affair with pickles. I still love pickles but I like to think my writing has grown since then.

I absolutely adore anything to do with books whether it's writing them or devouring them in one sitting. I live on music, love, and sweet tea. I am known for my silly but blunt personality. I've been lucky enough to find the love of my life, marry him and now we're working on our happily ever after.

He inspires me in everything I do, but especially in telling love stories. I'm an ordinary girl living an extraordinary love and I'm so happy I get to share it with the world through my writing.
