Ginger Voight is a screenwriter and bestselling author with over twenty published titles in fiction and nonfiction. She covers everything from travel to politics in nonfiction, as well as romance, paranormal, and dark, “ripped from the headlines” topics like Dirty Little Secrets.
Ginger discovered her love for writing in sixth grade, courtesy of a Halloween assignment. From then on, writing became a place of solace, reflection, and security. This was never more true than when she found herself homeless in L.A. at the age of nineteen. There, she wrote her first novel, longhand on notebook paper, while living out of her car.
In 1995, after she lost her nine-day-old son, she worked through her grief by writing the story that would eventually become The Fullerton Family Saga.
In 2011, she embarked on a new journey–to publish romance novels starring heroines who look more like the average American woman. These “Rubenesque” romances have developed a following thanks to her bestselling Groupie series. Other titles, such as the highly-rated New Adult series, Fierce, tap into the “reality-TV” preoccupation in American entertainment, which gives her contemporary stories a current, pop culture edge.
Known for writing gut-twisting angst, Ginger isn’t afraid to push the envelope with characters who are perfectly imperfect. Whether rich, poor, sweet, selfish, gay, straight, plus-size or svelte, her characters are beautifully flawed and three-dimensional. They populate her lavish fictional landscapes and teach us more about the real world in which we live simply through their interactions with each other. Ginger’s goal with every book is to give the reader a little bit more than they were expecting, told through stories they’ll never forget.

Review Tour ~ Kira's Warriors (Ravens of War 4) by Elle Boon



Kira's Warriors
Ravens of War 4
by Elle Boon
Genre: Menage M/F/M, Gods, HEA, Paranormal Erotic





 Kira lived the life of a pampered princess of a wealthy Japanese man who mourned the loss of his son, and missing wife. She’d been given everything a girl could want, but nobody was allowed close enough to love or hurt her. All that changed when her life was threatened and he hired the Ravens as her security.

Thane and Garrick never expected to find their Fated, let alone that she’d be touched by a god. The legend of the Kitsune was steeped in mystery, but they’d need all the help they could get to save their Fated from the god who possessed her brother. They’d need to travel into the deepest levels of hell, and fight the Shinigami to save her and her brother. 

Kira realizes Thane and Garrick would give up their own lives to give her the family she’d never had. She would fight to hold onto the best things she could ever ask for, her warriors.
TEASERS
Kira had to shake off years of longing for a family, and hold onto the best things she could ever ask for, her warriors.




I have loved everyone of the books in the Ravens of War series this far, and I can tell you that this book is as great at the rest of the series.  Yes all of the books can be read stand alone, but why would you want to miss anything in this series.

As with the other books in the series, this one picks up where the others left off and this one is about Kira, Thane and Garrick.

Kira has had a lot to deal with in her young life,  a family curse, the loss of her brother, the loss of her mother and a father that loves her but does not know how to show that love.  Add to this that she is not a "normal" person, that she has a special gift that was granted to her and she feels like she is the odd one, the one that everyone over looks.

Thane and Garrick know from the moment that they lay eyes on the tiny woman that she is their fated and they will do everything in their power to protect her, make her theirs, share an eternity with her.

When her possessed brother comes back looking to take Kira, it will be up to Thane, Garrick and the rest of the Ravens to put an end to the evil that exists.

What I loved about Kira, Thane and Garrick is that they each had each others backs.  Though they wanted to protect and keep Kira safe, they trusted her and allowed her to fight with them.  Not holding her back and that was what she needed the most.  Their respect, their love.  She knew that with that, with them, she could handle anything.

I so love Elle Boon's writing and stories and I look forward to reading more about the Ravens of War.

I give this book 5 fabulous stars




I knew the second I read about Kira in Jacklyn's book that we would get another twist added.. I wasn't disappointed!
Kira is a spunky take no shit woman who just happens to be the FATED of Thane and Garrick. When they get called in for a job they never thought it would be to protect their fated, let alone from something and someone no expected.
Like the other three ladies in this series, Kira doesn't take any shit. Only this time she knows she has certain powers from within. When the three of them get together sparks fly and maybe a creepy old man enters their life.. you'll just have to read to see what I mean.
Great job Elle, I can't wait to read all about the remaining Ravens
5 STARS





I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom of 2. I say retired because my youngest is 14 and my oldest is 21 eeek. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I recovered and realized how quickly life could change, I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live. Check. On top of that list was to become a published author. Check. Eight years later I have accomplished that goal and several others. Now, I continue to add to the list and check them off as I go.
I live in the Midwest, but I”m a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently, and am known to say “Bless Your Heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say that to, lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class *WEG*.

I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the imagination, in or out of the bedroom. My hope is that after readers have read one of my stories, they fall in love with the characters as much as I have.

 The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds, and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written. I truly love to hear from readers. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter or my website, but I’m on Facebook all the time, so find me. I’d love to you from you J.

Blog Tour ~ Kinkaid (Bad Boys of Retribution MC Book 2) by Rie Warren





BLURB:

From the world of Carolina Bad Boys and Retribution MC, a steamy New Adult standalone novella . . . Magic Mike XXL ain’t got nothin’ on Kinky Kinkaid.

Kinkaid:

Bonafide pussy magnet. Kinky Kaid I wanna get laid. Yeah, I’ve been called that shit and more. It comes with the territory. See, I’m a male stripper. I shake my moneymaker so I can pay the bills and take care of my people.

I’m also a hardcore, hell-bent biker dude, the newest prospect at Retribution MC. Probie 2.0, and they can never find out how I earn my living. Women love me. They toss their panties at me. They push hundred dollar bills into my G-string. I’m down and dirty and the honeys dig it. All but one.

There’s this girl, Sadie. She’s beautiful and funny and kickass with some major ink. I’d never make a move on her because she’s my best friend.


Sadie:

Best friend? Bullshit. Kinkaid treats me like I’m his kid sister. I’m the hell-raiser, the tomboy dirt biker, his late night call but never like that. He thinks he’s safe from me. I’m going to prove him wrong. I’ll make him see me as a woman one way or the other. 

When I find out what Kinkaid’s been hiding there’s hell to pay. Except then he gives me a lap dance. A hot, wicked, panty-melting lap dance. A lap dance that unleashes our intense desire, fresh jealousy, distrust and anger.

Everything changes after that, and not for the better. I love him. I hate him. I can’t lose him. Sometimes I can’t stand him. He’s hot as sin on a sultry lowcountry night, and he’s still my best friend.

I don’t know if he’s man enough to give me what I need.

Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.






I was hooked on the Bad Boys of Retribution MC after reading Hunters book, but I was blown away after reading Kinkaid.  I love a hero that is tough, but has a soft side.  One that is caring and loving and stands up for his friends and family.  That is what we get in Kinkaid.

Kinkaid was raised by his grandfather from the time he was in diapers.  He is tough, it is strong and he will do whatever it takes to pay the bills and take care of his ailing grandfather, even work as a dancer in a gentlemans club and that is the one thing he can never tell his best friend Sadie, or the guys at Retribution MC.  Not that he is ashamed of how he pays the bills, but he is afraid that they will not understand and throw him out.

To his surprise, the night Sadie shows up with a group of friends, his cover is blown and his is forced to give her a lap dance.  It is then that all of the brotherly feelings that he thought he had for Sadie fly right out the window.

Sadie has been in love with Kinkaid since they were kids, but he never looked at her as anything more then a best friend, a little sister, a buddy and pal.  Now when Kinkaid starts looking at her as more than a friend, and the sparks start to fly, they decide to throw caution to the wind and see where this might go.

What I loved about Kinkaid is how he takes such good care of his grandfather, he includes him in everything that he does.  Does not try to hold him back and makes sure that he has what he needs.  I love how protective his is of Sadie as well.  The things he does for her, the places that he takes her because he knows that she will enjoy it was touching.  The way that Sadie stood by Kinkaid when he really needed her, despite their misunderstandings and arguments was so touching.  The way that MC group rallied around Kinkaid and Sadie  just proved what a great group of guys that they really are.

I look forward to reading the next installment of the Bad Boys of Retribution MC and give Kinkaid 5 kinky stars.




More in the Bad Boys of Retribution MC series!




EXCERPT: 

I accepted a stiff drink from Rebel-Mae, the funky punk bartender with the glow-in-the-dark pink fauxhawk, forgetting for a moment I was the Grade-A beef in the joint. No sooner than I took my first sip of Jack, women surrounded me, pressing against me, panting all over me.
I couldn’t very well leave the clients out in the cold. I slung an arm around one of them and smiled at another, raising my eyes in a help-me expression across the bar toward Rebel-Mae when something familiar snagged my gaze.
I did a double take. Then a triple look.
Then my legs almost collapsed out from under me. My heart went sluggish. My body felt cold. My gaze stopped on none other than Sadie my-motherfucking-best-friend Grace.
Holeeey Shit.
She stared at me with wide unblinking eyes and pink spots on her cheeks.
Everything got real hot, real fast. I hadn’t been this nekkie in front of my best girl since . . . oh yeah . . . never. I was acutely aware of that fact as Sadie’s eyes coasted painstakingly from the top of my head all the way to my toes like she was taking inventory.
My heart returned to its normal rhythm then it decided to go one better and jackhammer in my chest. I returned Sadie’s stare with the same scrutiny. No wonder I hadn’t picked her out in the crowd. Sitting about five feet away from me, she looked like a complete stranger . . . a very sexy stranger.
Sadie usually wore paint-splattered coveralls, torn jeans, and baggy T-shirts with her thick hair braided down her back. Tonight her hair hung loose and straight as a sunbeam. It reminded me of the beach at Isle of Palms—a mixture of white gold and sun-spun brown, little sparks of red filtered in. Soft and silky and silty.
It wasn’t just the hair that blew me away. Sadie had curves all of a sudden. Where the hell had those come from? The killer dress was the same turquoise blue as her eyes and made her irises stand out all the more. The dress? Oh man, it was silk or something, cinched at her waist with a straight skirt that didn’t go low enough on her thighs as far as I was concerned. And the top? That was no better. The neckline needed to be a lot higher, turtleneck high, come to think of it. As it was, the damn thing hugged what looked like perfectly round tits, a suspicion supported by the fact a tight V of tawny cleavage was very, very visible.
Finally—dear Lord—her long willowy legs ended in inappropriately strappy, high heels. Not her standard, sexy Fox Racing Moto-X boots. This was not the regulation Sadie uniform I was used to. Her outfit definitely affected the blood pounding through my body—loudly in my ears and coursing lower at an alarming rate to my cock. My cock that was barely covered in black mesh. Yeah, it was about to bulk up.
Sadie only glanced away from me when one of her group tapped her on the shoulder. The chicks giggled and whispered, and my worst fears were soon confirmed. It was a bachelorette party. Yep, one of the babes wore a veil and a white sash that read: Bridezilla! Tall glasses littered the table, and out of each one popped every bride-to-be’s favorite party favor: a plastic penis straw. The women were well lubricated, well on their way to Happyville with a trip to Hangover City in the morning.
Sadie didn’t look happy. Not one bit.
I’d thought her discovering my dirty little secret was the worst of it.
I was proven wrong in the next instant when Sadie’s crazed posse pointed at me, chanting, “LAP DANCE! LAP DANCE! LAP DANCE!”
You have got to be fucking kidding me.
But no. It got a million times worse when Bride-fucking-zilla (that shit was no joke apparently) got up, drunk-swayed over to me, and pushed me at Sadie.
“With her!” Bridezilla shouted as I stumbled in Sadie’s direction.
“WHAT?” I caught myself moments before I face-dived between Sadie’s legs, rocked backward, and then quickly moved clear to the other side of the table. Where my ass was immediately pinched.
Bridezilla looked expectantly at me then Sadie.
“What?” Sadie echoed my question.
“Well, you two can’t keep your eyes off each other,” said the blonde wifey-to-be. “Might as well get your hands in on the action too.”
This can't be happening . . .
Jesus fucking Christ.
Yahoo! said my cock.
That thing needed a choke on it.
Older brother/best friend? I felt none of those things all of a sudden, especially when Sadie looked in my direction and slowly wet her lips.
Maybe shock and horror wasn’t quite what she was feeling after all.
I was definitely hot-faced, and no way did I want to give my best friend—my hottie hot best friend—a freakin’ lap dance. Unfortunately the rules were the rules.
“Gotta go change first,” I mumbled.

SAY IT SEXY by Virna DePaul
Say You Love Me #1
Book 1 in the Say You Love Me series, starring a group of male friends—hot young Hollywood heroes and hard-partying rock band bad boys—each on the verge of meeting the girl of his dreams.

This life I’m relishing—the women, booze, and parties—won’t last forever. But while it does, I’ll take it all in with no regrets. Pleasure stands paramount. When I party, I forget all the trash that’s happened in the past. It’s the same when I’m acting, when I become someone else, someone not afraid to feel or make others feel. It’s what I live for: The next party. The next role. The next girl.  

That’s my life. That’s the way I want it to be. 

Except now I’ve met Gwen… 

Garrick Maze, young Hollywood’s hottest bad boy, just landed the male lead in a new network television series. Known for indulging in wild parties, casual hook-ups, and fast cars, he spends his days on set and his nights on the town. Love’s the last thing on his mind, especially when it comes to his ice queen female lead. 
Gwendolyn Vickers intends to be America’s next celebrity sweetheart and that means keeping her public image pristine. The last thing she needs is to be linked to trouble-making heartthrob Garrick Maze. But he’s shamelessly flirty and sexy as sin. Her body craves him. Soon, so does her heart. 

When secrets from the past clash with the bright lights of fame, Gwen realizes there’s more to Garrick than washboard abs and sex appeal. He’ll prove that when it comes to mixing mind-blowing pleasure with true love, he’s not about to let her down. 








Book 2 in the Say You Love Me series, starring a group of male friends—hot young Hollywood heroes and hard-partying rock band bad boys—each on the verge of meeting the girl of his dreams. 

I’ve seen and done it all—sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, and then some. I’ve made the cover of Rolling Stone. I’ve won Best Rock Performance at the Grammy’s. I’m living a life of fame, wild tours, crazy money, and insanely hot women. But the one woman I can’t get is prim and proper cellist, Abby Chan—gorgeous, natural, talented as all sin. The first time we met, I knew we would be something special. She’s not convinced, but I am. 

Now I’m going to prove she’s all the woman a wild man like me will ever need…
 

Liam Collier, sexy and enigmatic frontman for Point Break, the world’s hottest rock band, is at the top of his game. With two songs in the Billboard Top 10, he’s a rock-and-roll bad boy, known for his trademark falsetto as well as his proclivity for partying and hooking up with gorgeous women. For Liam, falling in love was something he figured would happen far off in the future—not on the first day of his first world tour. And not with his super sexy but extremely reserved background cellist. 

With a Master of Music degree from Juilliard School of Music, Abby Chan is on the road to becoming a cellist for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. But to pay back her expensive education, first she has to travel another kind of road—a gig playing cello for the North American leg of a garish rock band’s world tour. She’d expected hard work and long hours, but what she never expected was the intensity of her reactions to Liam Collier. He’s sweet. He’s hot. And despite being surrounded by roadies and the world’s most beautiful women, he’s set his sights on her. 

When classical music meets rock and prim propriety meets a carefree attitude, Abby and Liam venture outside their comfort zones. What they discover is that living wild is the perfect preparation for flying high—on love.
