The Wild Thistle Trilogy #1
Madelyn Hill
Releasing August 31st, 2016
Soul Mate Publishing

Remember, lasses. Through Hope, Faith and Honor, ye can rule,” were the last words Lady Laird Hope MacAlister’s father spoke before dying. Those very words direct her every action and thought. Sword fighting and leading the men of her clan is second nature to Hope and she has little time for herself or any thoughts of love. Until Aidan MacKerry is captured spying on the clan.

She is beautiful, strong, and quick to pull a sword. But when he kisses her, all thoughts of the Lairdship flee his mind. When the enemy continues to undermine Laird MacAlister, Aidan is determined to aid her—only he didn’t think he’d lose his heart to the Laird of Wild Thistle Keep. When the enemy reveals Aidan’s secret, he must fight for his right as laird and prove despite their differences, he loves Hope.

The enemy refuses to back down and continues to threaten not only Hope, but the security of the entire clan. Only together will they be able to save the clan and save their love.


She sighed and set her free hand at her waist. “We need to find my sister, not stand her havering.”

Sadness and worry flitted in her gaze. Heartache over her mother he assumed and mayhap a wayward sister. The grief seemed to consume her as they walked and Aidan loathed to see a sad woman—even if it was Laird Hope MacAlister. If she started crying he’d certain flee, for nothing was worse than consoling a woman in tears. But he doubted she’d show such vulnerability to him.
She glanced toward the other caves and then back toward the keep. She gave a frustrated sigh. Her face soft with desperation to find her sister. She was worried and inside she was fretting and he knew only one way to take a woman’s mind off her troubles.
He stepped toward her and swept her in his arms. Her eyes widened as he descended, slowly so not to make her skittish, but with enough purpose she knew his desire. Her lips parted and her tongue darted out quickly to wet the plump surface. His lips brushed against hers with a soft caress. She gripped his arms and pushed. He kissed her again, slanting his mouth over hers. She stiffened, then her fingers dug into his biceps as her lips relented, accepted his kiss. As a moan escaped her lips, masculine triumph flared and he delved deeper. A sizzling leap of lust cursed through him. God, she felt good in his arms. Aidan ripped his mouth from hers and narrowed his gaze. His chest heaved. His blood sang. Through hooded eyes, he watched her and inhaled the womanly scent about her. Hope’s face was flushed, her eyes glazed. Aidan reached for her again.
With a flick of her wrist, a dirk appeared from its sheath and pressed against his ribs. “You touch me again, and you’re a dead man.”

Review                        5 Stars

A very interesting story to read, specially having been on the side Bloom is or was.
Bloom Freelander thought it was safe to breathe again when Detective Sam Larson told her her ex was being released.
It was hard to read, for me anyway, not that the book is bad, it's a great story woven around Bloom and Sam and all the other characters that comprise this story. Would recommend it to anyone to read it so they can see what she had gone through and will go through before she is totally free.

Blog Tour: Live Wire by Cristin Harber

CristinHarber_LiveWire_HR (1)

ABOUT LIVE WIRE Where Are They Now? on iBooks! Titan Group is expanding! New recruits mean Jared Westin has potential new hires to scrutinize. What he didn’t expect was his very pregnant wife Sugar to finagle her way onto the surveillance team as the prospects were assessed. Her involvement in the simple observation goes dangerously wrong. She and best friend Lexi Black stumble into a problem with Russian mobsters. Sugar is forced to draw on her old ATF tricks, but weeks from her due date, she has no choice but to team up with Bishop O’Kane, a potential-new recruit and Parker Black, Lexi’s hacker husband, who must go undercover. This is special ops novella is packed with high-stakes crime and intrigue, a baby story for Boss Man, and two steamy romances for two of Titan’s favorite couples!


“This is exciting.”

He plopped them both down, and Lexi curled into his arms while he surfed the channels for something sports related. With a football-classics channel on in the background, he tied her hair around his finger and watched her smoky eyes flutter open and closed. “So exciting, you’re falling asleep.”

“Stop it.” She turned in the crook of his arm. “You get to play cops and robbers all the time. Sugar does. Everyone does. I think it’s neat even if I just get to sit in a car and listen to my girl babble about her spot-on gut feeling. It’s something different.”

Parker pressed a kiss to the top of her head. “Just be careful.”

“How much trouble can we get into watching a guy grocery shop or whatever?”

His rumbling laugh met hers. With Sugar, they both knew the answer.

“Alright. Of course we’ll be careful.”

“Good.” He let go of a piece of her platinum-blond hair. “Go to sleep, and I’ll carry you to bed.”

Lexi turned over on her chest. “Why am I going to sleep?”

“Uh… sports? Because your eyes are shut?”

“I’m a full-fledged spy girl now.”

“Alright, spy girl. You don’t need to sleep.”

“Maybe I do. Either way, I know this isn’t technically how you guys scout your new team members. But really, Sugar was going stir-crazy. She needed to feel as though she was still important to your team.”

“Of course she is.”

“I just kind of know that there’s something unexplainable about being pregnant and having folks handle you with kid gloves. It has to be a first for her.”

He cackled. “No one’s treating her any different.”

“Bull. Even Sugar’s treating herself different.” Parker squeezed Lexi tight. “We take care of our own.”

As she snuggled into his chest, her previous life seemed a thousand miles away, yet she knew he was dead serious. “I love you, and I love being part of your world.”

“It’s not just this job, Lex. Or what you do for Jared behind a computer screen.” He kissed the top of her head. “You are our world. Once you’re in, you’re in. Titan for life.”

Grayson nodded his head and smiled at Keira as Alice trailed after her cousin. She caught up to Edmund, and placed her hand on his elbow to catch his attention. She leaned close, keeping her voice low.

"I have news."

"Oh?" He plucked a glass of wine off the tray and handed it to her. She held up two fingers, meaning she wanted wine for her and Grayson. He gave her another glass.

"I have my necklace back, Ed."

He raised a skeptical eyebrow. "Really?"

Alice glanced at her purse. "It's in there."

He frowned. "Well, I guess we can go home now." "What's the frown for?" she asked.

"It just so happens I'm enjoying Keira's company."

Alice bunched her lips, agreeing with his sentiment. "And I'm enjoying Grayson's."

Edmund grabbed two glasses for himself and they wandered back to their dates. "The right thing to do is go home, Cousin," said Edmund.

"Well, yes, but..."

"But, what?"

"Grayson invited us to his estate in Sandhurst next weekend -- Keira as well."

"Naughty, naughty, Cousin."

On the sultry streets of Buenos Aires, the daughter of a world class tango diva searches for answers about the mother who abandoned her—and uncovers decades of lies and deception…

After twenty Eyears of wondering why her mother chose the tango over her, Dani McKenna finally travels to Argentina. What was it about this beautiful, mysterious land that enticed one woman away from her own child—and broke another’s heart? As a journalist, Dani may have the opportunity to find out. And an enigmatic tango dancer may hold the key to her quest—if she can break down his defensive walls.

Carlos Escudero had been Dani’s mother’s protégé. Tragedy ended his career and he refuses to be interviewed. But he will give Dani some insights, on one condition: she must agree to his tango lessons. As the two begin the intricate dance of passion, Dani’s quiet, logical world is exchanged for one of music, motion—and mystery. For the clues to a tango legend’s murder may lead Dani to the truth about the past and its impact on her family—and free her to move toward a future she can claim as her own at last…

She narrowed her eyes at the ancient lift cage. No matter how many times she chastised herself, Dani found it impossible to enter one of these boxes without being slammed by the memory of the last fiery argument between her parents. No child wants to witness such venom, especially from her own flesh and blood. She planted her foot on the marble steps, even though her mind tried to convince her that dashing out the door, sight unseen, was the best option. Perhaps it would be better if she knew nothing about Iris, as the truth had the potential to rip Dani’s heart out. As much as she tried to deny it, though, the stars had aligned and Dani’s arrival in Argentina offered the perfect chance to build her career and heal old wounds—or make them deeper.
