Title: The Curse

Author: Margaret McHeyzer

It's been the butterfly effect.

Because now... I'm becoming a weapon.

Author Bio

**Write something worth reading**

I'm Margaret and I'm a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best selling status on my YA/NA book - Ugly, and my YA book - Mistrust.

My last three books have been YA and I'm completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the 'perfect' woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren't just about the romance. They're about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

The Conclusion is here!!! The Questions are answered! 

Picking up right where we left off in The Gift, this story is packed full of suspense, action, tears, and happiness. 

With Lexi’s ‘curse’ she is perfecting how to use her new founded talent. She is becoming a very powerful person. But at what cost? It seems like no matter which way she turns, people are getting hurt, people are dying, all because of her and her ‘curse’. 

Jude is her solid. He grounds her. He makes her feel like she is still the normal young woman. But is that truly who Jude is? Or is Jude using Lexi for her ‘talent’… 

Every page turned, you find yourself second guessing who is the good guy/gal and who is the bad guy/gal. The twists and turns have you reading nonstop to figure this story out! But in the end, it’s as clear as can be!!!

[release Boost & Review] BAIT by Jade West

Title: Bait
Author: Jade West 
Genre: Romance, Suspense 
Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Model: Jonny James
Cover Designer: RBA Designs 

A stranger online. Dark hair and even dark8er eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did. 

A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me. 
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase. 
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.
Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

  1. Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact. 
  2. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. 
  3. Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. 
  4. She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. 

  5. She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

Climb the Jacob's Ladder to Prince Albert. I love a man with Jewellery !!!

The heart palpitating , speedracing story of Monsters that come out to play at night , and the little girls who are baits , sometimes get more than they bargain for. Monsters in fantasies are less scarier than the Beasts that exist in real life ! Who the real beast is , is just a manner of perception 

"The bait using a decoy to snare the hunter. beasts come after bait."

Jade has the bravado to delve into the dark world of kinks and fetishes , which most Dark Authors lack. She's educated me enough on some very weird elements of BDSM sex. This book explores Chase Fetish /Fantasy. It's not a recreational activity, it's because Abigail is troubled by her nightmare where her monster chases her through the forest. He's supersize , ominous , and pounces her no matter how fast she runs. And every night she sweats and screams through her nightmare. She's a transplant in Hereford due to her failed relationship earlier. 

"My dirty soul must be a beacon to other dirty souls out for a good time. It’s always like this. They must smell it on me. Taste it on the air. Hone into the fucked-up frequencies of freaks like me."

So she decides to take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and indulge in one night stand of Chase Fantasy with a random stranger . No strings attached !!
The first time she gets cold feet. But hunting online , she meets Leo Scott -Her Monster. 

"I’m seeking my monster in the darkness. I’ll run but you’ll run faster. We’ll play cat and mouse until you catch me. I won’t know you, and I’ll pretend I don’t want to. You’ll pretend you don’t care. I’ll tell you I don’t want it. You’ll tell me you’ll take it anyway, and then you will. And it’ll be rough. One wild night where anything goes, and then we’ll never see each other again."

They partake in their fantasies multiple times , in a safe & sane , controlled environment , and decide to part the next day. But the obsession and infatuation takes root , and rest as they say is runaway history.
Leo /Phoenix is hiding some skeletons in his closet too and he's carrying an excessive baggage of failed marriage, missing wife, vengeful addict of a brother , an elective mute boy , trauma, a sister stuck in between, loneliness and guilt .
It's like their lives mirror each other with loneliness and betrayal the common denominating factor. So they hear the woes, see the bleeding hearts and turn to chasing monsters to heal together!

"I loved hard. I lost harder. And then I lost everything along with him. My job. My home. So many people I cared about. Then I lost the baby too. I bled my soul out with the life inside me. Bled so hard I nearly disappeared too. My world spat me out and kept on turning without me. It was too painful to stay, so I ran. And here I am, just trying to make a new life. It’s hard. It’s really, really hard."

The twist in the story is intriguing
two things bothered me though
when indulging in rough, hard chase fetish, neither establish a safeword. Its brutal, hurtful sex and obviously NO means carry on , cause they're role playing. So how would they stop!
Secondly , there wasn't much depth in Jame's and Abi's story. Leo's character was outlined super crisp. 
But a Jade story is always "push the envelope" in the kinky world, so I'm her ardent fan !!
I loved the concept and execution . I loved Leo, he's very mysterious and aloofish kind .

[Cover Reveal] HEALED BY YOU by Christy Pastore

Title: Healed by You
Series: The Harbour #2
Author: Christy Pastore
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Sara Eirew
Release Date: September 19, 2017


Some relationships go far beyond the Hollywood backdrop.

Fake romantic relationships have always been a thread woven into the fabric of Hollywood. In the old days, studios played the matchmaking game simply to promote their movies. Today the game remains the same, only now the stakes are higher and the players ever changing.

The two of us knew what rock bottom looked like and we needed a way out of the rubble before it destroyed our careers and our reputations.

From multiple staged paparazzi appearances and charity polo matches in the Hamptons to romps in the Caribbean and even being seen together at a high-profile celebrity wedding, the plan was simple—an agreement that would benefit all involved.

But, falling in love was never part of the plan.

And for two famous friends, one summer in the Hamptons could change everything.

“You feel that?” he asked.  “The instant we touch, your heart speeds up.  Now feel this,” he said, moving our hands, fingers still laced to press against his chest.  I could feel his heart pounding against the palm of my hand, as I got lost in his eyes.  “Mine does the same thing, and it’s not because of how bad I want to be inside you.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I fucking need to be inside of you.  No––this feeling right here is because you make me feel alive.”
“No.  You don’t get a say in this.  I was a mess until I met you.  You invaded my dreams at night.  You captured my thoughts during the day.  Hell, even Logan noticed the difference in me.  I’m better…because of you.  You saved me.  Now let me love you.”


I grew up in Chicagoland and now live in quaint little town in Northwest Indiana. I have two beautiful children and husband who worships the ground I walk on (or at least he should). I've always loved reading. Now I'm expanding that love into writing and look forward to producing many books.

I'm a huge geek and proud of it. Books are my life. I love reading, especially fiction. It doesn't matter the genre or age group. I will read anything from comics to novels. I read at least one book a day. If it wasn't for my kindle, my living room would be overflowing with books.  ::  :: ::  ::  ::



Popping my Amber Lacie Cherry with Indigo was a great experience! What a good emotional ride I went on. While there are quite a few laugh out loud moments, hot steamy scenes and some emotional scenes before you get to the end of this story.

Indie is a serious don’t mess with me kind of girl. She has a disease she suffers from called hoof-mouth disease. In other words, she likes to put her foot in her mouth and says what she thinks before thinking about what she is saying. Having been brought up in a house that was not full of love by two parents who sought out to hurt each other, she knows for a fact that cupid is not real.

Lex is on his way to play baseball in the big league when a horrible accident happens. Now living the life of carrying on and taking care of the ones he caused the pain and suffering to, he isn’t living life for himself anymore. Even though it’s wrong how he is living, he just can’t move past that horrible day that changed his life forever.

When Indie and Lex meet at the sticky as crap floor bar, pickup lines flow back and forth. It’s great to see how they both feel so free bantering back and forth. But will their past come into play and not allow them to go further than a casual chit chat when they see each other? Or will their past only make them stronger and allow them to be together?
