My review of Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves.

This review is from: Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves (Kindle Edition) I read this book not knowing what to expect. It's not my usual genre. I was pleasantly surprised, however and very glad I picked it up. What an adventure. Jim Morgan definitely had behavioral issues. He was spoiled and just a bit self centered, yet not beyond redemption. Jim's character flaws work themselves out as the plot thickens and he becomes a very likable, caring person. His journey takes you on an amazing ride to battle with pirates, decipher a riddle and run along next to him in search of hidden treasure! The story is magical and full of drama and humor. Even though it's meant for a younger audience, adults will enjoy it too! I highly recommend the read and look forward to the next book in the series!

Spotlight on DL Jackson!

     On the couch with DL Jackson!
Thank you for coming, DL Jackson! Get comfy...I have a few questions for you. Great book by the way! :)



 Comment for a chance to win a copy of Endris Night! Great story!




What was your first 1Night Stand story? Can you tell us a little about it?
My first 1 Night Stand story was, Cinderella Wore Combat Boots. It was about a Marine First Sergeant who is retiring due to an injury received while deployed and the party the Marines in her unit throw her a party and set her up on a date, all to show her that life doesn’t have to end with the Marine Corps.
Do you have any others? Can you tell us a little about them?
I have three other stories that are published with the 1 Night Stand series. Those would be This Endris Night, a mix between paranormal and science fiction. The story is part of a Christmas collection and takes place in Alaska. The heroine is a Yupik supermodel and the hero is from out of this world. Seducing Liberty is a time travel/menage story. The heroine is a movie star, the heroes men from the past who are part of Washington’s Culper Spy Ring during the Revolutionary War. And last but not least, My Boogie Woogie Bugle Guy. This is a contemporary military romance with a less than typical hero—an Army trumpet player. This one’s got a Big Brass 40’s recreation Swing Party and some fun scenes that play off the quirkier side of my humor.
Do you have any other 1 Night Stand stories in the works? Can you share an excerpt or two?
Currently I have one under contract that should be coming out at the end of this year. That would be, Being Prince Charming, and it follows Cinderella Wore Combat Boots. I have several in the works. Three more of the military fairytales, Waking Beauty, The Princess and the Frogman and Beauty and the Brigadier. I also have an un-named 1 Night Stand, that follows This Endris Night.
These are all unedited excerpts, so please excuse any errors or typos.
Being Prince Charming:
Lissa left and never came back, going home to where they’d been high school sweethearts, even if her family had long since moved on. Gunny crumpled the divorce decree and tossed it in the trash, refusing to hold onto the one souvenir he’d retained from his marriage with Lissa. Gone were their wedding pictures, the dishes, pots and pans, everything that had made their off-camp apartment a home, including the woman he still loved. He surveyed the room. Except for a few pieces of outdoor plastic furniture, it was as empty as his life.
No matter how he tried, he couldn’t wrap his mind around the finality and accept it. Marines didn’t give up. He picked up his bags and walked out the door, not bothering to lock the door behind him.
Anyone who wanted it, could have the remnants of his life. He’d finally retired from the Marine Corps, and thanks to Cori, he’d secured a job working for Sol’s company, Protect and Serve. Not that it mattered, without Lissa he had no reason to care, but it would help him to get by until he could figure out how to get his wife back.
Make that ex-wife.
And he would get her back. Eventually she’d come to her senses. No one could turn love off. He’d be the one to know. His heart ached constantly for the woman he’d once had. He’d been an idiot not to listen to what she said, to put the Corps before her. Hindsight being twenty-twenty and all that, he decided it was time to man up, improvise, adapt and overcome.
He strode up to the unsexiest vehicle a man could own, a fifteen year old minivan with rusty doors, a black cloud of smoke that followed wherever he drove it, and a driver’s side door wouldn’t open. He tossed his bags in the back, and climbed over the passenger seat to take his place behind the wheel. He patted his pockets and extracted the key, wondering why he even bothered to remove it from the ignition. A thief would be doing him a favor to steal it.

Waking Beauty: 
My name is Chief Warrant Officer Alexandria Larson. I fly an Apache as one of the elite Nightstalkers. If you are reading this, I probably didn’t make it back from Afghanistan alive. Know that I entrusted this document to a chaplain on the installation I was stationed out of, who was to contact Madame Eve at 1 Night Stand for directions where to send this, in the event something happened.
I needed you to know why I stood you up.
This was my third deployment, but everything felt wrong from the moment I set my boots down on Khandahar airfield. It was why I enlisted the help of an online dating service. I wanted to experience love on my terms—if only for a night, and if I made it home, I promised myself I would.
All my life I’ve pretended to be someone I wasn’t, but if you are like me, you know what I’m talking about. The, don’t ask, don’t tell policy of the military, prevented me from coming out as a lesbian for many years. Even after it was lifted, I felt I couldn’t come clean about who I was—at least not to Uncle Sam. Being one of the few female combat helicopter pilots for the Army came with a cost.
Silence.
It was hard enough to earn the respect of my peers, and as you read this, you’ll understand more why I did what I did. I’m only sorry that I never got to meet you.
I knew from the moment Madame Eve contacted me and told me about you, that you were all I ever dreamed of. Smart, beautiful. And my heart ached that you were alone—like me. I wanted to kiss you. Hold you. Your picture...I’ve carried it with me since I received it in the file from the dating service.

The Princess and the Frogman:
“I asked you not to judge me. It’s not crazy, considering all I have to lose. I have to make this one night count. I may never have another chance. So, what was that question again?”
Amanda sighed. “Your ideal man?”
“Tall. Handsome.” Elizabeth closed her eyes. “Let’s see...he’ll have dark hair, a stomach I could do the laundry on, or lick chocolate from. His smile will be enough to make me drop my panties and....” She smiled.
“And?”
“Hung.” Elizabeth looked over at Amanda and winked.
Amanda choked on her drink, spewing it across the beach shelter. “Excuse me, miss virgin. Hung?”
“Yes. If I’m going to have sex one time in my life, I want a big....” Elizabeth lifted her hands in the air and stretched them about a foot apart.
“Right. Are you sure?”
“Yes. Put it down.” She leaned back and rested her eyes again, listening to the waves and the squawks of the birds above.
“Got it. Big dick.” Amanda started typing and suddenly stopped. “Oh, good lord.”
Elizabeth cracked an eye and studied her best friend. “What?”
“I think your order just came in with the tide.”
“You’re kidding.” She sat up and began to scan the beach, not seeing anything that looked like what Amanda mentioned. She did spot a little old man in a Speedo two sizes too big, wrinkles hanging over the fabric, making it appear smaller than what it really was. The baggy ass and leg openings where his junk partially hung out, gave away the fact it didn’t fit him, but blech..the guy was about ninety, and she so didn’t need to see that after just having lunch. Bitch. Seriously? “Ha, ha. Very funny.”
“I assure you, I’m not kidding. I just creamed my bikini bottoms. Not over there.” Amanda reached over, gripped her under the chin and redirected her gaze to the left. “Look at that. Come to mama.”
Walking down the beach in a black and red wet suit with the top peeled down to hang around his hips, a set of fins in one hand and a snorkel in the other, was the man she’d just described. “Holy shit. I want that one. He’s perfect.”

Un-named 1NS:
Now games, Lucas knew, and if anyone could show the bastard what he’d lost, it would be him. As she continued to talk, Lucas knew he would grant her last request, give her the night of her life, and show her first fling what he’d walked away from.
He knew this Madam Eve, had applied to her service to get close to prey before. He’d never gotten a response from her either, so he chose to crash her party in Alaska the year before, and found himself chin deep in an ocean of shit. If Nadia hadn’t had a response from Eve yet, chances were she wasn’t getting one. But there was no reason he couldn’t fulfill her request. He’d certainly paid for it, in more than one way.
He could step in and pretend to be that date and nobody would know. He’d also show her how a real man could worship her body. And then he’d kill her. He had no choice. He was a Tracker and Trackers didn’t let hybrids escape—with the exception of the last one who’d saved his life.
“Well, I’m not suppossed to be here after six, so I suppose I’ll see you in the morning.” She rose to her feet and started up the stairs. As she exited the chamber, Lucas’s stone exterior cracked and turned to dust, leaving him crouching on the stone pedestal in his true image. He hopped down, wearing a tee shirt, khaki pants and work boots. A quick dust off and he took off running toward the secret passage, hoping to cut her off.
Lucas skidded around a corner, pressed a block on the wall, and ran into the dark, using his enhanced vision to navigate the passage. He stopped in front of a wall, pushed another block and the wall slid open. He stepped into the narrow passageway. His people had provided the blueprints for the temple thousands of years before, making sure they were designed as they had been on his world. Not hard to figure out where hidden rooms and corridors sat, the sister to this temple sat in his home city of Qwurwa.
As soon as the passageway closed, Doctor Crane came around the corner and ran head-on into him. “Oh.” She staggered back. “I didn’t realize anyone else was....” Her mouth dropped open when she looked up into his eyes. “Here.”
Lucas caught her arms, steadying her. He raised a brow and gave her his best panty-melting smile. Trackers were hand-picked from youth. Only children that possessed certain attributes had the honor to train as one. They were intelligent, comely and warriors. A lethal combination that helped them to get closer to their prey. Whoo hoo for genetics. “Doctor Crane.”
“I fear you have me at a disadvantage.” She bit her lip, but didn’t shrug out of his hold. “And you are?”

Why we want what we think we can't have.

     This is a question sent to me in an email for the advice column. I cleaned it up of course and will answer it to the best of my ability.

I personally have always wanted what was just out of reach. The unobtainable, if you will. I think perhaps it's a flaw of mine. I'm a very prideful person. Yes, I said it. I'm ate up with it in certain areas and lack it in others. Well, this would be one of those areas. If you tell me I can't have it, that only makes me want it more.
     If I hear that I can't write a particular type of book, I will write the damn thing if its the last thing I do. If you tell me I can't walk a mile in your shoes, I will walk in them until the soles are gone. With that being said...I'm the opposite when it comes to relationships. If you tell me I can't have a particular person...I will do it just to prove I can. (Pride). BUT, if that particular person voices the same thing, I have no interest. Example-If a third party says, You can't get that guy...My pride will demand that I do, even if I don't want them long term. If that particular guy says...I'm not interested in you, I will lose the attraction....and YET, that same pride will demand that I go after one a step above them...Even if it's short term. Pride is a lonely bed partner to be sure, but it strengthens you in other areas, such as your career, your position in society as a whole.
     I think pride is a beautiful thing to have..........................
Now, I'd like to talk about women for a minute. When it comes to men, we will step over a good one to get to a bad one. If he has no money, no job, several DUI's and commitment issues, we're all over it. We will give up the nice guy who will treat us as we should be treated...with respect, loyalty and love for the one who is indifferent. The one we have to wait on calls from. Who doesn't return texts, who is always late, who wants what they want, when they want it. Who isn't giving in bed. It's not because they are better than the nice guy...It's because of our pride...Our self esteem issues. We have to prove to the world that we are good enough to "Land" the hunk. And why? They usually suck in bed...and do you know why that is? They are too pretty and have no need to try. A less than gorgeous guy will blow your mind sexually, because he will try harder.
     Now, to spin the table...Guys are exactly the same. They are usually attracted to the ones they are intimidated by. The smart one...The funny one...The cute one. Here's the big difference---Women will actually give an average guy a chance if he's alluring enough..attentive enough....Not you guys. You want that one....the one who has her hand out...Who expects you to pay, to bow down. It's human nature. My suggestion is this.....I have no f****ng clue! I do the same thing! Guilty.
     In all seriousness....One piece of advice...The grass is not greener on the other side. I've tasted both sides. It's not. I have learned a lot in the last year and a half of not dating. I love ME. I'm worth THE BEST. And I won't settle for anything less. I will have what I want, because I won't stop until it's achieved.
     Go some place private. Sit alone and be quiet. Look inside yourself...Deep....ask yourself what you want...What do you REALLY want? What would have to be done to get it....and make it happen. You have the strength inside you...We all do...You just have to believe in YOU and grab it with both hands.
Good luck in your endeavor.

Juli Falzone is stuck at home for her thirtieth birthday after the TSA puts her on the no-fly list…until her doorbell rings and she finds two hot cops standing on her porch with a warrant for her arrest.

Are they a practical joke from her well-meaning friends, the best birthday gift ever, or has her identity been stolen? Wanting answers and maybe a little more than curious, she lets them in. Can she talk her way out of the situation or will they make her come along peacefully?

When longtime friends, Tracy, Ashlin and Dara head to Las Vegas for a mini vacation and a little female bonding, the plan is simple: cut loose, drink a little, dance a lot, gamble and take in a male strip show. Once they’ve checked those activities off their itinerary, the three gals improvise and make a new plan. A pajama party that takes a turn—not for the worse—for the wild. With the help of a bag of sex toys, they put themselves on each other’s to-do list with some unexpected results that might test the bonds of their friendship, changing the dynamics forever.

The Neighbor Chronicles-Take 17


      Where did I leave off? Oh yes. Mr. Ugly reincarnate opened his mouth and my brother planted a fist in the hole. Blood sprayed the door as he flew back onto his ass. He didn't get up. We stood there looking at him for several heartbeats before we sprang into action. I retrieved the gun while my brother drug him none too gently down the steps and across the yard, by his feet.
     The second I saw his wife come flying out her front door, I grabbed the broom and sailed off the porch in her direction. No, I didn't use it to fly with. Although... (You know why a Witch shaves her Hoo Hah? To get a better grip on the broom.) Just thought I'd throw that in there. So, She landed on my brother's back, right about the time I swung. Nailing her across the shoulders. She screamed and turned loose with a quickness. After writhing on the ground at my feet, she stood and staggered back to her porch, leaving ugly asleep near an ant bed. He was beginning to come to by this point and my brother reached over and took the broom from my throbbing fingers. Yeah, they hurt like hell...I can only imagine what it felt like to her.
     He poked him in the side a few times until the guys eyes opened, then moved it around to his cheek and applied some pressure. He didn't move, just stared up at one of us, not sure which...In defeat. My brother finally spoke. "I have your gun. The only thing preventing me from calling the cops right now, is the fact that we aren't innocent in all this either. Now we're moving tomorrow and if you want the weapon back, you'll have to break in to get it. It's over, you got that?"
     He wheezed out a "Yeah" and pushed up onto his knees. My brother helped him up and he didn't shrug him off. Good sign right? Doubtful.
     We moved the next day and haven't seen cock eye since....Until....Ha!

      I hope you enjoyed the Neighbor Chronicles as much as I enjoyed telling them. <3

On the couch with Alicia White!




     I met Alicia over a year ago in my book group. This lady has really come far! I'm very proud to call her friend and fellow author. Check her out!

  [Erotic Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, werewolves, shape-shifters, spanking, HEA]
Emily Barre is a polar bear shifter living with her clan in Alaska. She’s been dreaming about her happily ever after since she was a cub...a big, strong male bear. Unfortunately, none of the men in her clan fit the bill.
Cole and Charlie Ward are in Alaska on a mission for their Alpha, Gabe Wolff. They both are caught off guard by an enticing scent…their mate. They want her immediately, but Emily runs.
Can a skittish bear fall for two wolves? Can Emily get over her past?











This book will be available on Amazon and B&N in six weeks.


Being a bear shifter wasn’t the easiest thing for a woman. The ability to shift into a giant, four-hundred-pound polar bear was amazing at times, but gaining that much weight in a matter of minutes, wasn’t the most flattering ability a female could have. Emily Barre loved her clan with her entire being, but there were often times when she felt something was missing, like she didn’t quite belong. She’d already passed her thirtieth birthday and still remained single. She’d had her share of lovers in the past, other men in her clan, but they eventually left. Mates were sacred among their kind, and all shifters longed for that person or persons who would complete them.
Emily huffed out a breath and blew her hair from her eyes. She picked up her cleaning rag and resumed wiping the counter of Mack’s Bar and Grill. As far as jobs went, it wasn’t so bad. She’d gotten to know most of the regulars who frequented the place. Some of them were friendly with a smile always in place, while others sat quietly and nursed their drink in private. Everyone had a story, some good and some bad.
Emily was lonely, and even when surrounded by a room full of people, she felt alone. It was past time she found her destiny and settled down. She wanted to have cubs, to feel connected in a way she never had before. Her heart felt heavy in her chest as she looked around. Would she need to leave her home in order to find what she was looking for or was there someone here she’d overlooked? She glanced up and stared blankly at the ceiling, wondering what fate had in store for her.
She blinked a few times. It seemed like just yesterday Evan Novikov was walking her home through the snow. She had been dating the twins for a while until their mate, Katie, showed up. She had no harsh feelings toward the woman. Mates were sacred. That damn mantra played through her mind repeatedly, and Emily let it comfort her like a warm blanket. Just once though, it would be nice if she was someone’s mate. She yearned to be a priority. If she ever found him or them, she vowed to never let go.
The phone rang, startling her from her wistful thoughts. Emily took a deep breath and snatched it up. “Mack’s.”
“Emily…we need the clan. It’s an emergency, Emma’s been taken by a wolf.” Takoda Youngblood panted, sounding frantic and Emily froze, fear choking her. Poor Emma, she was a human the Youngblood brother’s had recently claimed and marked. How could a mere human defend themselves against a wolf? “Emily!”
“I’m on it.” Heart in her throat, she hung up the phone. Without thought, she raised two fingers to her mouth and pierced the room with an ear-splitting whistle. The ruckus in the bar stopped and all eyes turned toward her. “Clan emergency…Emma’s been taken by a wolf.” She sneered, and en masse her clan jumped to their feet and began stripping down.
The noise became almost deafening with chairs scraping back and the growling and snarling echoing through the bar. This was one great thing about being a shifter. Clans always stuck together. They would all march into the forest as one and take back what was theirs. If you messed with one, you dealt with them all. An arm reached out and stopped Emily as she started to strip down, preparing for battle.
“Not so fast, little sister. You stay here. I don’t think all of us are needed.”
“Damn it, Tommy. I’m not a child.” She pulled away, hating the way he always babied her in front of the rest of the clan. Most of them thought she was useless. This time, she would show them she could fight alongside them, that she was an equal.
“It’s Thomas,” he scolded, “and I think you should stay behind. It’s one wolf. I’m pretty sure we can handle it.” He pulled his T-shirt off and patted her on the head.
Before she could respond, the bar cleared out and she was left standing there, alone. Emily ground her teeth, wanting to scream. She hated being left behind. Tightening her fists, she stomped out of the bar and watched as her other clan mates stripped and headed into the forest. She wouldn't be left behind, not again. Emily took off her clothes quickly, shivering from the cold before she let her bear rise to the surface and shift.

DitterVerse is launching!



     I have created a dream world for authors. It's a social media network similar to Myspace, but targets the literary world. Authors, readers, publishers, reviewers, bloggers, magazines, newspapers, cover models, graphics designs etc etc. Your profiles are equipped to carry as many URL's as you want. Mine has appx 8 of them. Everything about you can be linked directly to your profile page, you can even blog from it. It will launch in appx 6 days with the host, but it is live at the moment. Once it launches, the address will be Ditterverse.com. As of now, it iswww.ditterverse.yuku.com You can go ahead and set up your profile and browse around. Learn it before it launches. Get your links all lined up on your profile. No more sharing all over different links trying to get things seen. It will all be in one place. Also there are forums set up for tech support on how to's and must reads. There is an According to Ditter page that will run two featured authors of the week, every week. A Genre forum is being set up so readers can click the genre they are looking for and authors and links will be in columns and tagged. Enjoy and take your time. There is no hurry to figure it all out today, as it doesn't officially launch until next week. Thank you and I look forward to helping you any way I can. Look me up and friend me.www.ditterthegreat.u.yuku.com

Haunting Melody St. Claire Available Now

Melody St. Claire doesn’t believe in ghosts. Until a fire destroys her whole world, forcing her into a beautiful haunted house and the territorial domain of one very real, incredibly mysterious resident spirit.

Sexy Travis Santiago haunts the walls of his family home. Resigned to being alone, he merely exists in a place between the living and the dead until the frustrating little brunette enters his life and his heart. He can give her what she needs, if she would just believe.

The passion he ignites threatens to consume her, heart and soul, but may not be enough to hold back the nightmares. And Melody can’t possibly hope to spend forever with a man who is already dead.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave


Haunting Melody St. Claire ARC review!



    As many of you know, Haunting Melody St. Claire releases tomorrow. I just received the first ARC review and couldn't be more thrilled!

   Haunting Melody St. Claire got it's first ARC review!!http://wickedlilpixie.com/2013/05/30/sahara-h-arc-review-haunting-melody-st-claire-by-dawn-montgomery-and-ditter-kellen/

I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot when I requested this novella, I had read the pair’s previous work FoxFire and while that was fun, it didn’t stick with me as much as this novella. Haunting Melody St. Claire seems like it will be your average girl meets ghost novella, but there is an amazing twist that I won’t share because it will ruin the entire thing. The set-up was actually pretty perfect, I thought that a little too much of the novella was spent with Melody dealing with the fact that there was a ghost in the house, but the rest of the novella more than made up for it, and if I am being too ambiguous, it’s because I cannot spoil the tear-jerking, giant twist that these two authors put into their work.

Who is Jaid Black?



          My name is Ditter Kellen...and I'm an Ellora's Cave author. Most of you know me as Ditterthegreat or According to Ditter in my groups. I have been promoting and reviewing books for quite some time, so it was no surprise to run across Jaid Black on Twitter or Facebook. I've tweeted her, laughed with her and had conversations with her...never knowing who she really was.
         Ellora's Cave was a dream come true for me. It's common knowledge among the authors I mingle with, EC is top of the line and desired by many. To be published by them is an honor and I'm proud to carry the name on my books. I've known for some time now that Jaid was the owner of Ellora's Cave. What I didn't know was how she'd built it from the ground up...with 200 dollars.
        Women like her are a rare breed and I'm in awe of the determination and strength it took for her to do what she did. This beautiful, brave lady, paved the way and built the foundation for me to do what I do.
        I was on the phone last night with a friend and fellow author, who told me the amazing story of how Ellora's Cave was born. Why had I never heard this before? I mean seriously, it's huge. We know who invented cars, who wrote Twilight, Starred in Lethal weapon, killed the president...hell, we even know who invented the toilet...but one woman creates the first e-book publishing house, making it possible for erotic romance to finally have a voice...and she's not recognized world wide?
       I'm sure a lot of you reading this are aware of how it happened, but I wasn't. She was the first...The original...The beginning of it all. I for one would like to say, thank you, Jaid Black...for having the guts to live your dream....And giving me the chance to live mine.
      I snagged this video off YouTube. Please watch it. It's a briefing of her story...It's interesting, informing and humorous. Kudos to her!


Enjoy~
