Bold in Honor (Knights of Honor Book 6) by Alexa Aston, Historical Romance Release & ARC Review.





Welcome to Book 6 in the bestselling KNIGHTS OF HONOR series!

1381 A.D. – As the Peasants’ Rebellion spreads throughout England, King Richard counts on Sir Ancel de Montfort to restore order in Kent and Essex. The king commands Ancel to secure Highfield, an estate near London, and houses royal troops there to defend the area. 

Lady Margery Ormond flees Highfield as the uprising begins and members of her noble family are slaughtered. Sir Ancel rescues her in the midst of battle and returns Margery to her home, swearing to protect her. Margery loses her heart to the dashing knight and is thrilled when the king decides to reward Ancel by gifting him with Highfield and marriage to Margery.

But Margery’s stepbrother, Thurstan Vivers, escaped the peasants’ onslaught and arrives unexpectedly to claim his inheritance—and control of Margery’s fate. Can Ancel find a way to wed the woman he loves, despite Vivers’ plan to sell Margery to the highest bidder?

Join Ancel and Margery as they seek an answer that will allow them to unite in holy matrimony.

When the young King Richard the second came to the throne he needed the most trustworthy men for his personal guard.  Sir Ancel de Montfort was honored to be given the duty. 
When the peasants revolt takes place many of the nobility are killed by the rebels. 
Lady Margery Osmond is little more than a slave in her stepfather's house.  He and his sons are vicious bullies. This behaviour will seal his fate. 
This is an exciting journey into a troubled time in English history.  Our wonderful hero has got a lot of travelling and organizing to do.  Luckily he is well equipped to deal with it all. 
Our heroine is a lot braver and stronger than she would ever have believed.  She needs to be. 
You will be pulled into the lives of our characters and enjoy every bit of it. 
This is part of a series,  but each book can be read on it's own.  They are linked by the family involved in each book.  I have read all of them and they are all marvellous books.

Sweet Dreams (Beach Squad Series #1) by Marika Ray. Romance Release & Giveaway.

Title: Sweet Dreams
Series: Beach Squad Series #1
Author: Marika Ray
Genre: Romance 
Release Date: February 22, 2018
A romance so sweet it’ll give you a cavity…

After the devastating loss of my parents when I was in college, I vowed to focus all my energy on fulfilling my promise to my mom: to open up the hot chocolate store we’d always dreamed of running together. 
No distractions. My plans are set.
But things heat up faster than I can handle when a bronzed lifeguard pursues me in the most delicious of ways. Mix in a stalker determined to throw me off my game, and a comical, ass-kicking Beach Squad (okay, ‘squad’ is a littler over the top…it’s just me and my two best friends)…well, then you have a situation that requires a level of bravery I don’t know if I possess.
I may appear to be a damsel in distress, but I can save my own damn self, thank you very much. And I might just keep that hottie lifeguard as the whipped cream on top of my sweet dreams.
***Warning: this book contains references to sexual assault. 18+ strong adult content. Oh, and cursing. Let’s not forget the cursing.***

"My favorite kind of romance!! ...the climax near the end showed the strength of our girl and the support of our hero. It was PERFECT!!”

“This is the first I have read by this author and glad to see it is a series. I really like this group of friends and want more."
"Amazing debut. Great blend of sweet romance, heat, and light suspense."

Marika Ray spends her time behind a computer crafting stories, walking the beaches of southern California scoping out the lifeguards, and making healthy food for her kids and husband whether they like it or not. Prior to writing novels, Marika held various jobs in the finance industry, with private start-up companies, and then in health & fitness. Cats may have nine lives, but Marika believes everyone should have nine careers to keep things spicy.
Marika enjoys writing all types of fiction novels, based on what inspires her. Right now she's working on stand-alone romances in the Beach Squad series, all about California lifeguards and their equally fearless women. Moderate suspense, a splash of humor, and lots of steamy romance...all with the beautiful ocean as a relaxing backdrop!

Books Laid Bare - “A sensational debut!!”
Sometimes bad decisions... are made for the right reasons. 
I lost everything with the death of my bandmate—my privacy, my reputation, my career, and the love of my life.
I’m nothing but the living ghost of Madelaine Dobransky. Still, I’ve managed to make a new life for myself and build a successful business from the ashes. And even though my world is filled with guilt, secrets, and suspicion... it lies buried beneath the surface.
All I wanted was a tattoo. I didn't know that it would bring him—the one who watches—back into my life. Nor did I expect the tempting tattoo artist, Dexter McClellan, to lay claim on a place in my world. Dex wants to know me, to know the truth.
But I can’t let that happen. Because the truth is buried for a reason.
The truth will destroy me.
