Praise for Stephanie Julian:
"Stephanie Julian will tempt a saint and give the sinner what they want... Brutally vivid characters and flaming hot passion that just leaps off the pages. I cannot wait to see what will happen next."
-Fallen Angel Reviews


What do you get when you mix an Etruscan Goddess and a Cimmerian warrior together? You get loads of trouble and lots of hot sexy fun. What a Goddess Wants is a fascinating hot book and one no erotic paranormal romance reader should miss. I couldn’t put it down. I loved all the mythology and fun Stephanie added to this book. The storyline has adventure, danger, suspense and lots of animalistic sex *still fanning self* (there’s one scene has anal intercourse.) This book has some fantastic mythological characters that Stephanie can run on for a while.

I enjoyed both Tessa and Caligo. Caligo just got burned from another Goddess, so when he finds Tessa in his home a sleep he never thought about getting in deep with another goddess. But one taste of Tessa he just can’t help himself he hast to give her what she wants. Tessa is running for her life and need some help to keep her alive ,so she turns to a friend that leads her to Caligo. She has lived a very long time and no one has ever temped her or raised her heat like Caligo, but can this hero keep her safe enough or will she loose her life no matter what he does. Oh yeah, you have to read to see how deep these two can get into. Stephanie is known for her surprises in a story, so be prepared for some shocking mouth dropping reading. Now, I have to go bug her to see who is in the next book. So get this one on your list and read it ASAP.

*Fans self* This was one hot book, so you guys know what that means. LOL

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
