Biker Babe - Release Blitz with Giveaway and Review

Title: Biker Babe
Series: Biker Beauties #1
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2019

❃  Blurb ❃ 

From Audrey Carlan, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Calendar Girl series.

Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly, into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.

I’m not the girl you take home to your parents. I like wild, fun, and good times. I’m the kind of girl you put on the back of your bike and ride through the night…in more ways than one.

I like the wind in my hair and the open road before me. I was born a biker princess and I’ll be one until the day I die. The man in my life can try to tame me, but he’ll have one hell of a fight on his hands. Though if he wins, he’ll get the ultimate prize…all of me. Devoted. His old lady through thick and thin.

So when I opened my store, aptly named Biker Babe, I didn’t expect to have the biggest, sexiest, most jaw-dropping man walk into my shop and set my world on fire. I wanted him instantly. Only problem, my father is the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, and Taggart “Rex” Crawford is his new Vice President.

Our Pride likes to live wild and ride free but everyone knows the President’s daughter is off limits.

The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in heat, but don’t forget the sweet.

After just one book I know I am going to love this series. The author gave us a well written outstanding storyline with characters that are strong and loveable. Lots of MC behind the scenes action, which is another thing I loved about Biker Babe.

The book is a quick fast paced novella about the “club princess” and the man who wants to claim her. Which as most MC readers know claiming a Club Princess is no easy feat. He not only has to get the girl, he’s got to prove to his prez and the entire club he’s “good enough”.

I loved Biker Babe, book#1, and I’m looking forward to more in the Biker Beauties series. I highly recommend grabbing up this novella ASAP. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 Stars.

❤︎  Blurb❤︎

This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.

I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling Ahren.

Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life.
Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.
He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays.
A recluse of the worst kind.
Sterling makes Scrooge look like a generous soul
… except Ebenezer was never this sexy.

He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and we run out of condoms.
I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him.
Between my overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out.
Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go.
He wants me home for the holidays
… and this is my last chance to make a Christmas miracle happen.

One thing I know for sure: when Sterling and I collide, it’s going to be anything but a silent night.

Funny, touching, and delightful, this smoking hot billionaire holiday rom-com by Claudia Burgoa will make you feel the magic of Christmas.

❤︎  Review by Barbara❤︎

What a great holiday read. The author has given us wonderful characters that you can’t help but love, ok maybe you want to shake them a time or two, but for the most part the main and sub characters are all very endearing. As for the storyline- the author killed it, at least for me. It’s funny, sexy, romantic and had strong, independent male and female lead characters.

June is thirty three. She is a successful business owner with a wonderful loving family. However, her personal life isn’t what she thought it would be by this age. So she takes some time off work to sort her life out. What she doesn’t count on is Sterling. He’s a one night stand that was supposed to be one great memory. As for Sterling, he is a successful billionaire artist that lives life under the watch of his bodyguards due to stalking fans. He loves his life and has no desire for a relationship or family. Well that is until he meets June. Something about her makes him want to throw all his thoughts on how he lives his life out the window. Especially when he learns she’s pregnant.

I simply adored this holiday story. Even though June and Sterling definitely had their ups and downs and had terrible communication skills, outside the bedroom that is, this couple wormed their way into my heart making me laugh, smile and grin throughout. I highly recommend grabbing up this outstanding read and simply enjoying. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 Stars.

❤︎  Excerpt❤︎

“That’s only the office. My office. The rest of the house is gray, white, and black,” I explain as I show him all the pictures. “The master bedroom is going to be pink because of the bedding, but I’ll take it with me.”

He looks at me suspiciously and says, “Fine, you have good taste. Get neutral bedding, I’m not sleeping on a pink bed.”

You’re not sleeping with me, I don’t say.
“We just need a Christmas tree,” I add, wondering if I should buy an artificial one or a pine.

Scanning the house where we’re at, I find the perfect spot and walk toward it. “Here.”

“What’s happening there?” Sterling’s frown deepens.

“That’s where we’re setting the Christmas tree,” I answer, already thinking about the colors that will fit the house. “What do you have in storage? Any red or gold ornaments? I mean, if you already have a color scheme, I’ll work with it, but shades of red and gold would pop with your decor.”

Sterling looks at me. More like he gives me a nasty glare. “We don’t do Christmas or celebrate any holidays. The only colors I have in this house are in my studios and well, you.

Their only purpose is to create art.”

I frown and place my hands on my hips. “I’m a color?”
He grins and winks at me. “A very special one but let’s not digress.”

“What are you saying? I’m not allowed to have a Christmas tree and fill my space with cheer and joy.”

“You can do it for the rental. That’s your place for the next year and you can set Santa’s Workshop in there if you want to.”


“You’re judging me.”

“Not at all. Just wondering how we can get the pine here and we’ll need decorations,” I continue and turn to look at Beckett. “You seem like a resourceful man. Can you make this happen for us?”

Beckett smirks. “Red and gold?”

“Add some silver too it if you can find it. And if you see some decorations that’ll go with the ornaments, send me pictures before you buy them. The place looks bare.”

“No,” Sterling protests.

“I’ll have the team work on it. We’ll help you trim once we have what you need, Miss Spearman.”

“Thank you, Beck.”

“Juniper, I swear,” Sterling utters, his face is red, and it’s kind of funny to see him flustered.

“Yeah, you can swear. I’ve heard you for the past week. Also, I know you can use some holiday cheer and I’m here to share it with you.”

“Over my dead body.” He sounds stern.

“Beck might be able to do that too if you insist,” I say. “He seems to be trained to take down bad guys and I bet he knows how to hide your body and make your disappearance look like a holiday miracle.”

He doesn’t say a word, but I see there’s a smile playing on his lips.

Release Blitz with Review - Blindsided by Juliet Braddock

Blindsided by Juliet Braddock


Inspired by award-winning, bestselling author Juliet Braddock’s own experiences with vision loss, BLINDSIDED reunites two rival journalists who must decide if love really can triumph over their tumultuous past to build a new, albeit different, life together in the face of their greatest challenge yet.

Josie Rossi has trouble forgiving and forgetting. Although she relinquishes sexual control, she’s daring and resilient. Born and raised in New York City, she gets what she wants at whatever cost—everything except for her former colleague, Oliver Billington.

Just as driven and successful as Josie in his own right, Oliver has created a fa├žade, exuding a valiant front that masks the horrors he’s hiding. He lives an edgy existence, fighting every step of the way to forget the salacious moments of his relationship with Josie.

A chilling turn of fate sweeps these broken lovers into a fury of angst and lust. Josie returns to his life, forcing Oliver to unveil the emotions he’d harbored since their break-up a decade earlier.

The hands of time, however, didn’t sooth Josie’s anger—or weaken her passion for Oliver. She can’t deny her own hunger, but her doubts over his sincerity continue to linger.

Before they dare to consider a possible future together, tragedy threatens to destroy every last shred of hope they shared. As their lives change once again, Josie and Oliver must ultimately decide if trust can salvage the remnants of their love.

 Review by Kathy 

OMG....this was an outstanding read that took your emotions and tossed them around like a rag-doll being played with by a dog! Emotions will definitely run high with this book, but once that first shoe drops, you keep waiting--- just knowing that the second shoe will drop and expect your heart to be completely ripped out. It was the wait that gets you, ever single time with these two! You read the pages expecting the next turn to bring you to your knees. I LOVED THIS BOOK!

The characters were very well written and quite complex and charming in their own way. There were plenty of times that I wanted to bash one or both of them over the head, but they always managed to redeem themselves in my eyes by the next couple of pages. Yes, they both had their issues and eventually they managed to work those out...together! The supporting characters where amazingly written and quite lovely and supportive of these two. With Josie...her reaction to some of those supporting characters were the funniest there were. Especially with one particular doctor and one particular social worker! She spoke her mind and didn't care what anyone thought! Yes..she was her mother's daughter.

To be able to pick which part of this book was my absolute favorite is hard to do, but I think it would have to involve a dog! And I leave it at that.

I loved these two, I loved their story and I am so glad that I took this journey with them. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

 Author Bio 

Life changed dramatically for award-winning, bestselling author Juliet Braddock on January 13, 2017.

After suffering with blurry vision, Juliet found herself in the emergency room, surrounded by a team of neurologists. The diagnosis was Pseudotumor Cerebri, a rare disease that produces excess spinal fluid on the brain. She’d lost sight when the pressure from the fluid damaged her optic nerves.

Two spinal taps and three surgeries—including a shunt to drain the fluids from her brain—did not restore her sight. All along, she wondered and worried if she’d ever write again.

“One of the saddest days of my life was having to pull BLEMISHED from Amazon because I couldn’t make the publication date,” Juliet said. “I remember speaking to the rep, and she was so kind when I told her I was about to have brain surgery. But my heart was falling out of my chest.”

A lifelong writer, Juliet began spinning stories as soon as she learned to put pencil to paper. She refused to give up on her greatest passion, and she knew she had to find a way to finish BLEMISHED and continue her career.

With some help from her neuro-ophthalmologist, Juliet discovered vision rehabilitation therapy and software that magnified her computer screen. “I was amazed by the technology available for people who are blind or have low vision. And with the computer software, I was able to finish the book.”

Since her brain surgery, Juliet has published BLEMISHED and SMITTEN, which won the National Indie Book Award for Erotica. All along, though, she plotted through another story inside her head.

“When I started vision rehab, I took the bull by the horns. I learned to use a cane. I kept my mind open to devices and gadgets that could help me manage my vision loss. I even made a career change,” Juliet said. “It was so important to me to return to living a normal life again.”

As the story of BLINDSIDED began to unfold, Juliet had one goal. “I wanted to show people who might have lost sight that there is hope and help out there.”

In BLINDSIDED, vision loss disrupts reporter Josie Rossi’s world, but she’s determined to recover with assistance from the most unexpected places—and from former lover and rival journalist Oliver Billington. As their lives converge again through tragedy, Josie and Oliver must ultimately decide if trust can salvage the remnants of their love. 

“You don’t realize how much you depend on your eyes—from my job to walking down steps to going to the theater and museums. Suddenly, everything I did in my old life seemed like it depended on my sight.”

BLINDSIDED is dedicated to Juliet’s vision rehabilitation therapist, whom the author credits with giving her the courage to conquer this curve in the road.

Juliet also hopes to raise awareness of rare diseases that cause vision loss. “There are very few scientific facts on Pseudotumor, and I was asymptomatic.” By the time of her diagnosis, the damage to her optic nerves was irreversible, and Juliet is now legally blind. “But people need to know that this disease doesn’t have to be a death sentence. You can work a full-time job. You can write that book you’ve been plotting in your head.”

Since her last surgery, she’s traveled to visit friends both in the US and abroad, including a trip to Scotland. She’s also managed to keep up with her other hobbies of theater and art with special binoculars that she wears to catch the latest Broadway musicals and art exhibits in New York City.

Now, she considers every day a celebration. “I took life for granted when I was fully sighted,” Juliet said. “My friends, my career—and my writing. I’ve learned how to appreciate the world on a new level since my vision loss and brain surgery.”

In her spare time, Juliet loves travel, eighties music, wine, food, theater and all things French. When she’s not exploring the big cities of the world—most notably Paris—she lives and writes in Brooklyn and is the proud cat mom to a very spoiled Russian Blue rescue. She’s also a lifelong Duran Duran fan.
