Title: Cold Mark - The Complete Saga



Cold Mark - The Complete Saga

Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita Valorn must adapt to a dark life as a slave of the Mian society--her existence depends on it.
Danger lurks, and Braita's lack of knowledge of the planet, Triaz, is now abundantly clear. On a mission to find her best friend, Jax, she must infiltrate the Crank Pit, a brutal complex where Mian enter, only to leave absent a heartbeat.
Braita Valorn is stuck. She has no real freedom, her existence dependent on what the men of Triaz decide. But she desperately wants it to be, and will do anything to capture it.
Judgments are made, an archaic stand within Mian laws, and Braita finds herself charged with treason. But never one to sit during a battle, she risks her last chance of release with blackmail.
Braita Valorn is a disaster walking. One mistake after another on the planet Triaz has landed her in trouble time and again.
Will Braita obtain her freedom?
Or will she finally accept a life she never asked for?

Nikki's Review:
5++++ Stars!!

I'm not usually into sci-fi type books but let me just say, this one blew me away! The world building is so creative and imaginative and unique. The characters were all very enjoyable. Braita has the equal amounts of sass, courage, and girlishness. She's caught in a love-triangle with not just 2 but 4 guys. Now that sounds confusing but the way the story is laid out, each pair of guys is called a Vaq Pair and each Vaq Pair has one female destined for them. She just happens to be caught between two very enticing Vaq Pairs. What does a girl do with all that yummy maleness? 
I was able to connect with Braita from the beginning. She immediately shows that she's a strong, capable young woman. But even with that, she still has a lot to learn when she's forced from her home planet to live amongst a superior alien race called the Mian's. 
This story started out in installments and I followed it from the beginning. I'm so happy that it can now be found in one complete set because once you start you wont want to put it down until its finished!! It was like sweet torture waiting for the next installment! 
Scarlett Dawn is one of those authors that I wish I could force people to sit down and read because I know if they did, they would love her work as much as I do! She very quickly became an automatic one-click for me. I dont even need to read the blurb anymore before buying. I hope, like me, you come out of your comfort zone for this amazing story! You wont be disappointed! Make sure to also try Scarlett's other works! They are all MUST READS!!

Trusting Liam by Molly McAdams - Blog Tour

From the New York Times bestselling author of Taking ChancesFrom Ashes, and Stealing Harper, comes the new unforgettable adult romance Molly McAdams’ fans have been waiting for—the sizzling story of a young woman who must place her trust in the one man who can break through her defenses.
A night they will always remember…a connection neither can deny…a secret that could destroy it all…
When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.
Liam Taylor has been asked to help socialize his boss’s nieces. But what he thinks sounds more like a babysitting job ends up leading him to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning—a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.
But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?
"Trying not to wake him, I slowly slid out from under his arm and off the bed to search for my clothes. Once I was dressed, I told myself to just leave, but I couldn’t help it—I turned to look at him in the light. I needed to be sure I hadn’t made him up.

The images from last night tore through my mind again when I saw the large, tattooed arm resting where my body had just been. The muscles were well defined even relaxed, and the face had a boyish charm now that he was asleep. Such a difference from the predatory stare and knowing smirk I kept seeing in my mind. Before I could stop myself, I gently ran my fingers through his dirty-blond hair that, now in the sunlight, I could see had a red tint to it. And I knew if he opened them, those arctic blue eyes would once again captivate me.

But I couldn’t risk that.

I’d already stayed too long; I’d already made a mistake with him. Drunken one-night stands weren’t my thing. Drunken one-night stands with strangers in Vegas were even worse.
Straightening, I turned and walked quietly from the room."-- Molly McAdams, Trusting Liam
mollyAbout the Author:
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.

(please don't read review if you haven't read Taking Chances or Stealing Harper)

Where do I even begin with how much I loved this book?! Ok, so, if you loved Taking Chances and Stealing Harper, then you will most definitely LOVE Trusting Liam! Liam is the perfect blend of Chase and Brandon. If, like most of us, you still have a void in your heart from the loss of our beloved Chase, then let Liam fix that for you!  You really get the best of everything in Liam. And who does he fall for? None other than the daughter of our cherished couple, Kash and Rachel!! Kennedy has so much spunk in her that you can't help but to love her! She's very much like her daddy. :)
So, Trusting Liam takes place about 20+ years after Taking chances. *gasp* I know right? I cried when it hit me that Chase had been gone for over 20 years. Then I cried every time he was referred to. But it was such good cries. You get to see his baby boy being a man and you just know that Chase is right there with Liam. *sobs* Our original favorites make cameo's as well. Harper, Brandon, Bree, Rachel, Kash, Mason, Eli, Brian. Brian was hilarious! Some of my favorite parts of the book involved him!
Molly has done such an AMAZING job at not only combining these two series but filling and essentially healing our hearts from the hole that was left by Chase's death. I cant imagine that she could have done a better job with this story. I knew it was going to be good but it went beyond my expectations! It is a definite must read for all Molly McAdams fans and Chase fans! Let the healing begin!!
