Horizon ~ Goodreads Review**


Walker holds true to her trademark style. Dana is satisfied and she is having a

blast playing her way. With two men in her life, what’s to complain about? However,

when the unthinkable happens will they both run away, will she need them or can

they all stand up and face the music that is life?

I laughed out loud at this book, I cried and I fell in love

with two protagonists that really deserve ever happiness that they can get.

Kudos to Ms. Walker, a wonderful read and a wonderful insight

into a little bit of her world.

other kids would run inside to hide. Dana’s parents would have to drag her in

out of the rain and watched her like crazy to make sure she didn’t slip backoutside.


a hand up her side, Mason steadied Dana on her feet before grinning in Jake’s

direction. “We were playing truth and dare.” There was a smirk in Mason’s eyes,

a look that made it more than clear that he knew what Jake was thinking, even

if Dana was blind to it.

playing games a long time ago.”

She stumbled against him, braced her hands on his chest. Lifting her face to

him, she smiled and pressed her lips to his. “Wanna play with us?”


Reaching up, he closed his fingers over her upper arms, eased a few inches

between them. Hell, he’d play with her any day of the week if she’d stopped

seeing him as her friend, her old boyfriend from high school. “You look like

you’ve done enough playing for a while. How much have you had to drink?”

she kissed him.


full-on and hungry, she kissed him. Her breasts went flat against his chest,

her hands tangled in his hair and as rain pelted down around them, she just

about turned him into a raving madman. Quick, hungry kisses, soft, strong hands

pushed under his shirt and teased the skin of his back. Her soft belly cradled

his cock. She moaned into his mouth and then sank her teeth into his lower lip.

“Come on, Jake…play with us. Just while the storm lasts…I dare you.”

you’re drunk.”

gaze slid down, lingered on his cock, stiff as a poker and so damned hot and

hard he hurt with it. “You wanna play, too, Jake. I can tell.”

deluge, running in rivulets into their eyes. “She’s not drunk, McCoy. She had

two margaritas and the last one was before the storm started. A good

cuddling his front against Dana’s all-but-naked back.

Film student Ella Summers can’t believe her luck when she is selected to work on the set of the most anticipated film release of the year—STARSHINE. For the next four weeks, she’ll be in the studio with heart-throb and leading man Alex Denton, and his co-star—and recent ex—the stunning Amy Strickland. But her first day on set has her questioning the true character of the enigmatic and sexy Alex. The charming celebrity she’s adored on screen disappears before her very eyes—if indeed he ever really existed. Off-camera arguments between Alex and Amy become difficult to ignore, and when Ella uncovers layers of deceit and closely guarded secrets between them, she becomes involved in a battle that has far-reaching implications. With the paparazzi hounding her every move for the most sensational story they can get, Ella becomes deeply embroiled in Alex’s life. Can she break down his seemingly impenetrable walls, or will he remain the arrogant ass she first met? STARSHINE is set in London, England. Beware though—Alex Denton has a crude mouth, and an equally wicked smile.



Growing up, Melody Winter showed a natural ability in art, a head for maths, and a tendency to write far too long English essays. Difficult to place in the world when she graduated, she pursued a career in teaching, but eventually ended up working in finance. Melody is convinced that the methodical time she spends working with numbers fuels her desire to drift into dream worlds and write about the illusory characters in her head.

Melody lives in North Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two teenage sons. When not dealing with football, rugby, and a whole plethora of ‘boy’ activities, she will be found scribbling notes for her stories, or listening to 80’s music on her IPod.

Melody has a tendency to fall head-over-heels in love with her main characters, even when they frustrate her and refuse to act the way she wants them to. She is a romance writer at heart and loves reading and writing about anything mythological or magical, as well as exploring the gritty side of love affairs and the complexities of being in love.

SACHAEL DREAMS was her debut novel, (REUTS Publications, USA) and the first in the New Adult Romantic Fantasy series—the ‘Mine Series’. The second book in the series, SACHAEL DESIRES’, was released in November 2015, and the remaining books in the series, SACHAEL DELUSIONS, and, SACHAEL DESTINY, are due to be released in the near future.

Melody has also self-published two books, INIQUITY, the first book in a Dark New Adult Romantic Fantasy series— ‘The Ascent’ (The second book in the series, ADVERSITY, is due for release later this year.) and STARSHINE, Melody’s first contemporary romance, which will be released 29th May 2017.

Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.

Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.

Sweet, right?

Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.

Sounds like the perfect deal.

Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.

But oh so sexy.

And I need the job. I can do this.

One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured.

That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.

Their Virgin Nanny

Title: Their Virgin Nanny 
Author: S C Daiko 
Genre: MMF Menage Romance 

Two super-hot daddies for one sweet, sexy girl. 

Working as a nanny in an exclusive London borough 
for two bisexual alphas 
is my dream job. 
Except Gabe and Luke are so freaking hot they’re making me think dirty thoughts. 
I can’t have them, though… it would be totally outta line 
And they couldn’t possibly be interested in a twenty-two-year-old virgin like me. 
I’ll have to find someone else to punch my V card, right? Yeah, right… 

Sweet, innocent Eleri doesn’t realize how cute she is. 
Like a breath of fresh air, a ray of sunshineand every other cliché you can think of. 
She’s also sexy as f*ck, tempting as sin, and trouble with a big T. 
We wanna pop her cherry and make her ours.  
We know it’s wrong, she’s our kids’ nanny, but it feels so frigging right. 
It’s not like we’re gonna fall for her… not like she’s gonna fall for us either. 
Just a bit of fun… nothing more, nothing less.  
Until it isn’t…  

“They’re lovely guys,” she said. “The bee’s knees.” Then she dropped a bombshell that left me open-mouthed. “Although they’re totally committed to each other, they swing both ways,” she’d giggled. “One night, I went downstairs to fetch something I’d left in the kitchen, and you can imagine my surprise when I saw there was a woman with them and they were kissing her… both of them.”  
My hand had flown to my breast. “They’re bi-sexual?!” 
“Apparently. I’m glad they didn’t see me as I wouldn’t have known what to say.” 
I’d licked my dry lips, and she must have caught my startled look. “Don’t worry. It doesn’t happen that often, as far as I’m aware. After all, I’ve been with them three years and only saw the once. They’re really discreet about it.” 
I’d laughed and cracked a joke about disturbing their orgies, except now the thought of it is making me feel a hot and tingly sensation between my thighs. 


Abi invites me to her room for a glass of red wine and some popcorn, and we settle ourselves down on the giant floor cushions in front of the low table. “What was the woman like that you saw down in the kitchen with Gabe and Luke?” I ask the question that’s been festering at the back of my mind. 
“Blonde. Curvy.” There’s a sparkle in Abi’s eyes. “Why do you ask?” 
“Just curious.” I chew my lip. “I’ve never been with one man, so I can’t imagine what it would be like to have two.” 
Abi’s mouth forms an ‘o’. “You mean you’ve never had sex?!?” 
“No. I haven’t met the right person,” I pause and think about what to say next. “Boys my own age find me nerdy and I’ve never fancied any of them, to be honest.” 
“I can’t believe you’re actually a virgin.” It’s as if she’s suggested I have an STI.  
“I’m not exactly saving myself for Mr Right,” I groan. “It’s just the way things have worked out.”  


The wall-to-wall beige carpet is soft beneath my bare feet as I pad towards the queen-sized bed. I pull back the duvet, it’s too warm for that; thankfully, there’ a sheet underneath. The wine I drank has made me sleepy, and I start to drift off almost as soon as my head hits the pillow.  
Something disturbs me not long afterwards; I’m not completely submerged in sleep yet, and I’m suddenly wide-awake. What the hell is it? A strange sound, like someone’s in pain. No. Not pain. Oh. My. God! I’ve watched enough movies to know what that grunting noise is. There’s a rhythm to the sounds coming through the wall behind my head. Gabe and Luke are having sex.  
They can’t realise how thin the partition is between their bedroom and the guest room. Maybe they’ve never had anyone stay here before? Or could be they didn’t do it when there was someone? Eek, what should I do?  
I bury my head under the pillow, but I can still hear them. Should I go and wait it out in the bathroom? It won’t take long, surely, for them to finish? But I don’t get out of my bed… I’m too caught up in what’s happening next door. Just the thought of what they’re doing is sending tingles through my tits down to my pussy. My legs fall open and I slip my fingers inside my pyjama bottoms. I’m soaking wet. 
I’m a virgin as far as having sex with a man goes, but I’m not a prude and I’ve learnt to satisfy my urges without shame. I close my eyes and imagine Gabe pinning Luke to the bed, or is it the other way around? Jesus, I’d give anything to see. Oops, where did that come from?  
My clit buzzes as I stroke it, and my pussy clenches around the finger I slip inside. There’s a groan from the next room, deep and guttural. Is it Gabe? My nipples pucker.  
Loud as anything, I hear Luke’s voice. “Are you enjoying that, loverboy? Is it making you hot there’s a sweet, sexy little girl in the next room? 

S C Daiko is a romance junkie who loves writing about strong heroines and hot alpha males. Her stories are sexy and emotional reads. Originally from the UK, she now lives in Italy with her husband and two cats. Nothing makes her happier than connecting with readers and fellow authors.

Feature Friday With John Joseph Quinlan

It’s Feature Friday at Cariad Books and today we have the honour of featuring my friend and someone I admire so much John Joseph Quinlan I became friends with John just over a year ago I was struck by what a lovely gentleman John is so easy going and always gives time to his friends and fans.

Model & Actor John Joseph Quinlan Sylvester Stallone Famous Rocky Balboa Statue


Actor/Model John Quinlan Is seen pictured standing in front of the Rocky statue in Philadelphia. John says he has drawn strength and inspiration from actor Sylvester Stallone for his ability to stay focused, work hard, be disciplined, and overcome tremendous obstacles when he was first starting out and struggling as an actor. John, like Stallone, is no newbie when it comes to staying focused, disciplined, and putting in hard work. Two days ago, John made the move from Boston to Philadelphia in order to be closer to New York for auditions and acting classes. Overcoming obstacles and challenges in his own life, John felt that he needed to make this transition in order to continue on his path to becoming a great actor one day. Philly welcomes John to the City of Brotherly Love.

Passion Of A Witch



In a few weeks, Summer Leery will be mated. For most witches, it’s a time to celebrate, but Summer isn’t smiling. Her upcoming union is one of convenience, not love, contracted between her family and one of the most powerful families in the coven. As always, Summer’s loyalty remains with her kin and the traditions she’s expected to follow. No matter how much she detests her future husband. With her parents off to secure her nuptials, Summer is eager to enjoy her last moments of freedom.

Kian Lancaster’s relationship with his father is volatile. So finding himself at the bastard’s mercy is the last place Kian wants to be. Unfortunately, he has no choice. His mother is suffering from an unknown illness and needs constant care. Care that costs money. Money Kian doesn’t have. With little options, he lets his father pay his mother’s mounting medical bills, knowing the offer comes with a heavy price. Kian must work for his father’s ruthless company. Looking to forget his bleak future, he plans a nostalgic night of liquor and fun in the local woods. Unaware his destiny lurks in the shadows of towering pine.

Summer is shocked to find a human trespassing on her family’s land. More surprising is that the Goddess to all witches demands Summer welcome the cursed intruder. Summer has no time to waste playing host to a foolish human. No matter how handsome. With her wedding weeks away, Kian’s a temptation she can’t afford to entertain. But when her deity makes a decree… what’s a witch to do?

Kian’s about to find out. For the first time in his life, a woman didn’t fall to her knees to please him. Summer’s apathy shackled his lust and refused to let go. Kian knows he should stay away from Summer, but when it comes to this woman, he can’t get enough.

Their attraction is instant, their desire intense. Two hearts forced together by the will of a Goddess. Is Summer strong enough to resist Kian’s charm? Or will she risk it all to taste the power of love?
