beautiful Lies

Title: Beautiful Lies
Author: Gina Whitney
Genre: Erotic Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

Enigmatic Cameron Sterling is quickly rising through the ranks at New York’s most prestigious and corrupt law firm Wotherspoon and Associates. He has willfully avoided any meaningful personal relationships and is content to casually hook up with Becky, a young woman who fancies herself as his actual girlfriend. As a child, Cam witnessed his father murder his mother, and this was the genesis of his relationship-avoidance issue. The only thing he cares about now is becoming a partner at Wotherspoon and Associates. Cam is obsessed with the promotion and will not let anything—or anyone—stand in his way.

But when Cam crosses paths with Lilly Amsel, a fashion model, the edges of his well laid plans begin to fray. At first, Cam is unimpressed by Lilly’s exaggerated effervescence and entitled air. However, he is taken aback by her incredible beauty—legs as long as an Amazon’s, silky honeyed-hair, and blazing body. This undeniable physical attraction disturbs Cam on all levels, leaving him intrigued by Lilly and wanting to get away from her at the same time. 

Lilly is strongly aroused by Cam’s moody presence. His dark, erotic looks and heady scent ignite long-dormant embers of wanton desire buried deep within her. Practically hypnotized, she finds her body reacting in the most surprising and carnal of ways. However, the two separate and never expect to see each other again, but somehow they manage to still linger on each other. Lilly’s larger-than-life persona that Cam initially encountered is a sham, though. It is a well-crafted costume that masks deeply rooted insecurity and an unfortunate dependence on prescription drugs. This stems from a horrifically abusive childhood that she is trying desperately, and unsuccessfully, to forget. Her mediocre modeling career was the perfect vehicle for her to escape that tumult and simultaneously receive acceptance and praise. It did not matter to Lilly that the kudos were based on superficial assumptions. She was still almost satisfied with the result and what modeling could not fix, the drugs could. 

Enthrallment and lust have other plans, though. Despite their best efforts to stay apart, Cam and Lilly come back together and embark on a tempestuous affair. For both of them, a torrid weekend getaway in the mountains unleashes years of pent-up sexual frustration and destroys inhibitions. Cam has no problem taking charge as he relishes Lilly’s delicious inner nectar. Again and again, Cam delivers Lilly pleasure she has never known before, leaving her trembling as she reclaims the goddess within.

Mini Excerpts ~ Choose one
Leo emerged from the shadows like a tanned Adonis, naked from the waist up, his black jeans slung low on his hips. She marvelled as the glimmering light highlighted his muscular body, his skin glowed with an opalescence which radiated magically as he neared her. His hair streaked with shimmering gold streaks as he climbed onto the bed, pulled her close and kissed her. His lips felt intensely hot as he followed the curve of her slender neck with his fingertips, she moaned in delight as the warm tingling sensation began to spread in delicious waves throughout her body, the epicentre of the ecstasy beginning at the heart of her tattoo. He cupped her face gently in his hands and whispered softly.
“I love you Phoenix, I love you…”   
“I love you too,” she whispered back as she pulled him closer.
He began to slowly untie the ribbons of her silver nightgown, one teasing bow at a time. She reciprocated, moving her body and letting the gown slip over her glistening shoulders.  Her fingers traced every perfect line of his exquisitely chiselled torso, exploring his smooth tanned skin. He pulled her nearer, his hands gliding along the curve of her waist, and around her back as he kissed more passionately than ever.
    He tugged lightly at the last bow on the low neckline, the ribbons slipped apart and her gown slid open. He gently laid her down on the sumptuous pillows and kissed her svelte stomach.  His lips sensually brushing her soft skin, her back arched and she moaned loudly as he kissed each glyph in turn.   The Mandala flared brightly and heat began to rage exponentially through her body as the tattoo exploded in a spiralling chain reaction of pleasure. She cried out in pleasure as the fiery desire engulfed her entirely. She looked up into Leo’s cool liquid silver eyes sprinkled with glittering specks twinkling like exploding stars, and fell drowning in their depths, she was breathing hard completely lost in the moment.  
Leo smiled at her, when suddenly his features began to fade, disappearing into a blurring whirl.
She cried out desperately. “Leo!”
Holding her breath, his face began to return, but it was changed, no longer Leo but Lucius staring at her with a sinister leer.
“Hello Phoenix, did you miss me?” he laughed coldly.

    Fury: Book 1 of The Cure by Charlotte McConaghy
    348 pages, Published March 25th, 2014 by Momentum Books, Pan Macmillan

    In the tradition of Divergent comes a novel about a world where negative emotions are stolen ... and only those with fury can stand up and fight.

    Eighteen-year-old Josephine Luquet wakes naked and covered in blood that is not hers on the same day every year—when the blood moon is full. Josi has not responded to the "Cure"—an immunization against anger mandated by the government—and believes herself to be a threat to others.

    Then she meets Luke. Luke has had the Cure but seems different to the other "drones"—and he's dead set on helping Josi discover the truth about herself before the next blood moon.

    But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?

    Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

    About the Author:

After a Masters degree in Screenwriting she wrote ‘Avery’, the first in her adult fantasy series ‘The Chronicles of Kaya’, published by Random House.

    My Review-

    Fury is a good dystopian read. This dystopian is in a world where the government took away negative emotions away from people, turning them into drones. Josephine is the exception, every year when there is a blood moon she looses her memories and remembers nothing from that night.

    Fury has interesting characters and a good plot that will keep your attention the entire time you are reading wanting to know what you will learn next about the characters. I look forward to picking up the next book in this series.

    "The cold cocking of guns set my body on fire.
    It also did something worse. With mortal fear gripping me, my imminent Change wasn't taking second place anymore. My body churned the fear and my Panther grasped at the visceral power of the adrenalin in my veins.
    I ran.
    A gunshot echoed around the garden, the sound ping-ponging off the aging brick walls of the surrounding apartment buildings.
    I gasped as a blast of searing pain slammed into me.
    As a bullet buried itself deep within my shoulder."

    Panther Shape-shifter Kailin Odel just wants to be normal. Leaving her clan, and her Alpha responsibilities, to live with her grandmother in Chicago had been the best thing for her. Only then did she discover her ability to track and kill the soul sucking undead creatures called Wraiths. Now she protected the humans, and had something to be proud of.
    But, when she discovers the body of a murdered shape shifter, Kailin has to come to terms with the reality that her own kind are just as vulnerable as the humans.
    The closer Kailin gets to the killer the more she has to face the intricacies of her people. When the time comes can she accept who and what her real purpose is?

    I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practise given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each other's loves – it works wonderfully…

    My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.
