Release Blitz and Giveaway: Heathered Country - Part One by GM Scherbert

Title: Heathered Country: Part One
Series: Devil's Iron MC
Author: GM Scherbert
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2017

When I got pregnant with Sophie, I worried our lives would never get better. We spent years on the run from the man that swore he’d take her from me.
When I met Country, for the first time in years I felt true fear. I knew my heart and soul were in trouble and I wasn’t sure if I could trust myself, especially with this man. 
Country was kind and laid back but that was part of the problem. What if the kind of love I needed was something he could never give me?

My life was easy now after moving to Chicago from Texas. Predictable. 
When I met my spitfire, that all changed. I couldn’t wrap my head around my feelings for her, but my cock wasn’t confused one bit. I wanted her. Her every want and every desire were mine for the taking.
I was willing to do whatever it took to have her, even if what she needed was something I never thought I could do to someone, especially a woman. 
But, for her, I’ll find a way.

Two New Adult Romance Mini-Reviews: Free E-books by Vanessa Waltz

First off, I'm not quite sure how I got lucky enough to be on an list for this author in order to get these two to review.  I chose the one called The Cinderella Arrangement to read first because it sounded more like my type of read, as opposed to the other one called Dirty Prince.  And honestly, I think I might now be a fan of these "naughty prince" type of stories.  I remember reading one a few months back that didn't really grab me.  But let me tell you, Dirty Prince was so good!  Okay, so I'll do two mini-reviews for each one down below.

The Cinderella Arrangement:
My rating:  3 stars

Honestly I ended up a bit disappointed with this one.  It definitely started out pretty well, and I liked the idea behind it, but there was just something about the hero that I didn't like, or rather he just didn't quite win me over.  It seemed to be a pretty short story.  The writing was kind of simple, not bad, just not anything very fancy or unique.  I did enjoy it though, it was a quick read, and one that I kept going and had trouble stopping when I had to go back to work because it kept you wanting to know how certain things would be handled.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Fake Cinderella. Real Romance.
Luke Pardini is many things: playboy, tabloid fodder, ridiculously attractive billionaire. He’s the Prince Charming every woman dreams of.

And he wants me to be his fake girlfriend.

I don't want a relationship, even a make-believe one, but I do need the money. Writing isn't paying the bills, and I hardly have time for a second job, let alone a romance. But he's offering me a dream-come true.

I'll get the fancy dresses, the formal dinners, the full Luke Pardini experience. I get to be Cinderella for a few weeks, then I'll trade in the shoes. No problem, right?

Except I don’t have to pretend when he touches me, but he’s made it clear I only get to play his girlfriend for a few weeks. When midnight strikes, our Cinderella Arrangement is over.

He promised the arrangement would be simple.

I promised I wouldn’t fall in love.

Dirty Prince (A Royal Romance):
My rating:  5 stars

Okay, this book, this book was a HOLY  COW kind of read.  I had finished Royally Screwed by Emma Chase about a week before this, and had really enjoyed it as well.  It gave me the go ahead to try this one, even though as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I'd never really enjoyed, or thought that I enjoyed, this kind of story.  And honestly, at the beginning of this one, especially the first scene where Daisy actually sees Prince Liam in person and meets him, I did not like him at all.  He was an ass.  But once we got the chapters from his side of the story as well, I began to like him better.  The sex was really hot in this one, even the one scene that I don't know is something I ever want to try had a quality to it that definitely left me a bit flushed.  And just when the book seemed as if the big drama had happened and it was time for the HEA, there was a HUGE twist!  I love when an author does that in a story.  The only thing I'd have to say that I didn't like about this, is a very shallow thing.  While the guy on the cover is definitely attractive, he really doesn't fit the dirty, cocky, snarky type of guy that Prince Liam is portrayed as.  Other than that small thing, I highly recommend this one, and hope to read more like it from this author in the future.  Here is its blurb from Goodreads:

He may not be very charming, but I prefer my prince…dirty.

You’ve read the tabloids. They call Prince Liam the Dirty Prince. I met him. I slapped him. It was hate at first sight, and, believe me, he's even filthier than they say. How do I know?

I married him.

The closest I ever got to a castle back home was in a mouse’s theme park. Now I’m a princess stuck in the world’s naughtiest fairy tale.

Liam expects me to act like a princess, but the Dirty Prince doesn't get to teach ME how to behave. I'd love to catch the first pumpkin carriage out of this kingdom, but Liam’s giving me more happy ever afters than I ever thought possible. And what's even worse? I think his smart mouth and cocky attitude might be growing on me.

But just when I think I might be falling for my prince, fate intervenes. Our Once Upon a Time may be over.

But what if I’m not ready for this fairy tale to end?

Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2017
Cover Model: David Byers
Photographer: Michael Stokes

Aaron don’t ever call me Fatbaby’ Sims is lucky to be alive. Or at least that is what everyone keeps telling him. He doesn’t feel lucky, though.
He’s scarred, has more than a little bit of a bad attitude, and there isn’t a single day that goes by that he doesn’t wish his wife would’ve just finished off the job.
After being denied his old position at the fire department, he leaves, and doesn’t look back. He heads straight to Alabama and into the semi-welcoming arms of The Dixie Wardens MC. There he becomes a part of a brotherhood that forces him to get back in the land of the living.
Imogen is a smart girl. A girl who doesn’t always make the best decisions.
Her heart is in the right place when she walks into that prison, but it doesn’t take long for her to realize that her heart shouldn’t have had any say so in the matter. Especially when one wrong move lands her in the arms of a scarred man that looks frightening enough to scare any sane woman away.
Immediately enthralled by the angry man, she tries to get closer to him. But the harder she tries to get to know him, the further he pushes her away.
The only thing Aaron wanted to do after his now ex-wife was sent to jail was escape. Escape the awful memories. The pity-filled eyes. The curious glances.
He does a damn fine job at ensuring he draws as little as attention as possible, but then that annoying woman with her startling blue eyes starts hammering away at his resolve. Makes him feel when he doesn’t want to feel.
Imogen comes into his life and carves out a place for herself, obliterating his defenses one heated kiss at a time.
It doesn’t take long, and he realizes he’s in deep. Too deep to ever want to come out.
Imogen will know what it’s like to be loved by a reject.

“New guy.”  Someone muttered behind me.
I turned only my head to find Stone, the president, staring at me with hard eyes.
“Yeah?” I asked him, dropping my bag on the floor and heading in his direction instead of out the door like I’d originally intended.
“You’re here because you have a special set of skills that we need.”  The leader of the band of misfits, Stone, drawled.
I nearly laughed.
“That sounds like a bad line out of a movie.” I muttered, wondering where he was going with this.
He tossed me a glare and then yelled.
“Truth!”  Stone yelled.  “Ghost! Get the fuck in here!”
Ghost and Truth walked in the door at the same time, both of them turning to the side to walk inside, and stared at Stone
“Ghost, hold Truth down so New Guy can give him the fuckin’ shot.” Stone grumbled.
Ghost tackled Truth and wrestled him to the desk, then sat on him while Stone leaned back and watched.
“No, motherfucker!” Truth yelled.  “I don’t want it!”
“It’s the fuckin’ flu shot, you dumb shit.  Not a fuckin’ tracking device. Take a fuckin’ chill pill.”  Stone grumbled, staring at the scuffle that was going down in front of him.
I picked up the syringe from the table, similar to the one I’d given everybody else’s flu shot with, and stabbed it in the meat of Truth’s arm.
Truth bellowed in rage, and I flipped the guard up on the syringe before tossing it into the trash can.
“Done?” I asked Stone.  “I have to get to work.”
Stone nodded.
“Yeah, thanks.” He nodded. “Have fun at the nut house.”
I grunted something unintelligible, causing him to laugh.
“Don’t sound so excited.” He laughed.
I flipped him off and walked out the door just as Ghost was letting Truth up
“Why you gotta be such a big motherfucker?”  Truth growled.  “If you’d been anyone else, I’d have gotten away.”
“Why do you think I called Ghost instead of anyone else?”  I heard Stone reply.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
