FIERCE release day

Fierce by Nina Levine

Book Two In The Storm MC Series


Contemporary Adult Romance


Published 28th February 2014




She’s everything he’s never wanted. He’s everything she’s never known.



Scott Cole is a force to be reckoned with. As Vice President of the Storm Motorcycle Club he carries out his duties with a ruthless determination. He moves through life with a clear agenda - protect his club and his family at all costs.


He is intense.


He is loyal.


He is fierce.


He doesn’t give his love easily, but when he does, he loves fiercely. Settling down, however, has never been part of his plan. 


Harlow James is a country girl who has never met a biker in her life. She is also done with men. In her experience all they ever do is lie, cheat or steal. When she meets Scott Cole she knows he is heartbreak on legs. 


He is confident.


He is sexy.


He is bossy.


She knows she must fight her growing attraction to this complex man in order to guard her heart. When his world crashes into hers and dangercomes calling, Scott’s fierce desire to protect kicks in and Harlow realises that she might just have found a man worth taking a risk on.









“I get the impression that underneath that badass biker image there’s a gentle giant.”


“No, there’s just me, Harlow. There’s no image; I am what I am. Don’t fuck with me because I’ll fuck back,” he said, roughly, eyes piercing mine.



I leant forward, towards him. “I get that, but from where I’m standing, what I see is that for the people who don’t fuck with you, you’d give your life for them. And just for the record, I don’t fuck with people. Ever.”



He stiffened and his jaw muscles tightened. His breathing that had been deep and even was now ragged, and his eyes reached into my soul. I struggled to keep my own breathing even as the intensity of his gaze sent sparks of electricity through me. When he reached his hand up and ran his thumb over my lips, my heart nearly jumped out of my chest and goosebumps flooded my skin. 



Our faces were so close now, and when he spoke, his warm breath touched my lips. “The more I get to know you, the more I want to know you,” he rasped.

I found her sitting at the bar with Stoney. I likedStoney, but I didn’t like the way he was looking at Madison. “Eyes off her tits, Stoney,” I snapped.


Madison’s eyes widened and I waited for her response but she surprised the fuck out of me with her silence.


“Yeah, yeah,” he grumbled, moving off his stool to stand, “I’m outta here.” 


“His eyes weren’t on my tits, J,” she said as we watched him leave.


“Yeah, baby, they were.”


She rolled her eyes, “You weren’t even standing in front of him to be able to know that.”


I moved into her space, pushed my body up against her side and wrapped an arm around her shoulders. Leaning my face down, I spoke into her ear so that only she could hear me, “I know they were because you’re wearing a low cut, tight dress that your tits are almost spilling out of and it’s exactly where my eyes would have been if I was Stoney.”

Whoever said money couldn't buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.
My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad's spirit--God rest his soul--scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.
And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.
Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn't take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.
Being with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn't willing to pay. There's a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.

LOVE ME review

Read Trust Me before you read this book as this continues straight on from book one. 

This is a bloody brilliant book. I loved book one but this one is off the scales. My heart was seriously in my stomach through most of this book. This was one of them books I wanted to read but didn't as I was so afraid something would happen to destroy Allison and Damien's happiness. I love these two characters so I felt that anything that was hurting them in this book was hurting me. Yes the author had such a great way with her words I felt for these two characters. 

The love these two had for one another was true raw love. The chemistry between them was fantastic. The sex in this book was so so hot. 

I loved Sam in this book and I'm so looking forward to reading more about her when she gets her own book. 

Loved that the author gave us extra scenes from Damien's point of view at the end of this book. 

Really hope the author is busy writing as I need more soon.

Lean On Me review

This may be my favourite book yet from Nicola. I read book one and two and I totally loved them. 

This book happens at the same time as Hold My Hand. While Emily and Dexter are in the states this book tells us what's been happening in England with Rachel and Jared. 

Rachel is a brilliant feisty character. She lets it be known that although she's in a wheelchair nothing will hold her back. I loved her in first two books but loved her even more in this one. 

I'm so glad we hear Jared's story. I just loved him in the first two books so was super excited to read this one. He's just oh so hot and sexy. 

The banter between these two are brilliant. Loved the storyline. I really hope we don't need to wait too long for the next book. 

This author certainly knows how to get under your skin. Love these books.

What Goes Around Book Blurb


What if your loved ones kept ending up hurt, in danger, or even dead?  


After Randie Duncan’s brother is killed in a suspicious industrial accident, leaving behind a pregnant fiancée,Randie leaves her dream life in NYC and comes home toCullville, WA to mourn and heal with her sister, but has no intention of staying there permanently.


Following a painful break-up, Joe Baxter guards his heart carefully, but when well meaning friends match him up with Randie, he can’t fight his immediate attraction to her. As they grow closer, Randie finds herself debating the idea of returning to NYC, but Joe isn’t the only one who finds her magnetic. When a suspected stalker attacks her, things heat up. Joe believes the attacker may be the town’s troublemaker and mill owner’s son, Jared, who is paying too much attention to his late friend’s fiancée, but will he be able to prove it before someone else gets hurt?



Excerpt from ‘What Goes Around’:


Randie lifted her head and pulled back slightly, looking up into Joe’s eyes. She wanted him to kiss her and she wanted it to happen now, before the song was over. What she hadn't expected was the effect his kiss would have on her entire body. When Randie looked up at Joe, he had a look of mixed emotion, confusion and interest, and then he did exactly what she was hoping he would do. He bent his head down to hers and softly kissed her lips, once and then again. When he pulled back, she wanted more. She looked from his eyes to his lips and back to his eyes again, and ran her thumb over his bottom lip. She grasped the nape of his neck, running her tongue quickly over her lower lip and opening her mouth just enough. He leaned in again, placing his hands on either side of her face, and when the kiss continued, deepening, he pulled her closer putting his right hand on her back and his left hand in her hair. As the intensity of the kiss grew, so did her body's reaction. They were lost in the feel of the music and the kiss combined, pressing their bodies as close together as they possibly could until finally Joe stopped. He pulled his lips away and kept his eyes closed, as Randie relished in the effect. He leaned his forehead against hers, breathing deeply. He put his arms around her and, pulling her close, buried his face in her neck, lifting her feet just barely off the ground. After a moment, he lowered her, gave her one more quick kiss and then took her hand and led her off the dance floor.

AWAY review

Wow. Did I say wow? Ok I'll say it again. WOW. This is a fantastic read. I read a lot of books so when a book gives me goosebumps I know I'm in trouble and need to get the tissues ready.

Cassandra is running away. .. Why is she running ?? 1-click to find out. 

She finds herself lost in a small town where she meets the gorgeous kind cowboy named Jason.   

The storyline is brilliant. The characters are wonderful. The author grabbed by attention straight away. 

The twist in this book had me texting my book buddy Sue saying OMG this is a must read. 

If your looking for a really lovely story that may have you in tears then this is the one. 

I rarely re read books but this is definetly going into my re read folder. 

Brilliant book. Received arc in return for an honest review.

Love Bats Last review

This is a really lovely hot story. It's based on two characters Alex and Jackie. 

Alex is a baseball player and he manages his fathers vineyard. He's hot and sexy and I just loved reading about him. 

Jackie is a vet who works in a marine centre. She's trying to find out why the sea lions & seals are dying mysteriously. Alex can't resist volunteering in the centre to be close to Jackie. 

The research the author did for this book on the two main subjects- baseball and marine biology is fantastic. I certainly love reading a book that broadens my mind with subjects I know nothing about. When I started reading this I wasn't interested in either subjects but once I got into the book my views changed. 

Great writing with a brilliant storyline.

Just Shoot Me promo post

Just Shoot Me (Cowboy Way, #1) a new series by Becky McGraw, author of the Texas Trouble Series


Tina Montgomery needs to find her Texas Tomcat. Her promotion and livelihood depend on it. That promotion could mean a new life for her, her sister and her niece. It's a big risk however, because if she fails in her bid to head up a new menswear line at her company, she could lose everything. That's why finding the perfect model to represent the line has become her sole focus. At the point of thinking she would ...never find that man, one with both experience and attitude that shows in his face and eyes, she meets Dean Dixon. His gorgeous eyes tell a story she definitely wants to hear and the man has more attitude than any she’s ever met. Physically he's perfect for the job. But that attitude she thought she wanted in her cowboy quickly becomes her biggest downfall when she tries to convince the sexy, but hard-hearted rancher to help her.

Dean Dixon is done with women. His cheating ex-wife has shown him just how untrustworthy women are. He has a ranch to run, and a son who might not be his to raise alone. That's more than enough for any man to handle without dealing with his sister-in-law’s friend who is determined to convince him to model for her company. He has seen what that industry has done to his brother. Dean is a rancher, not a model, and he isn't about to abandon his family or fall into the same trap his brother had. He stands his ground, until his sister-in-law tells him why Tina needs the promotion she’s wanting so badly, and asks for his help. Hope had bailed him and his family out when they needed her the year prior. How could he refuse to help her now?

From Johann to Tannenbaum book promo

From Johann to Tannenbaum (standalone)

In the underground colony of his birth, two things matter the most to its denizens: a name, which will guarantee his wealth and status, and a designated branding tattoo, the only thing allowing Colony-Dwellers to live safely underground. Johann has one year to find a husband in order to secure both.

Grandfather's unexpected passing has propelled Johann to the foreground of his family. He's up to the challenge but one thing stands in his way; his mother has plans of her own...and they don't include him.

In Liam's Wake book promo

In Liam's Wake: The Makeshift Soldier I

For eight years, Liam has been trapped underground in The Colony—a sanctuary so determined to stay hidden it forbids anyone from leaving once they've entered. His only hope of returning home rests on his best friend Riley who, on the eve of their escape, slipped into a coma. 

Despite staggering debt, vengeful mutants and bounty hunters, Liam continues a seemingly never-ending quest for a cure to end Riley's unnatural five-year sleep. Every night, Liam stares at the listless man who not only holds his escape, but his heart. The suffering can end, however; Liam must only forsake all hope of ever returning home again, abandon Riley to his fate, and wholeheartedly serve as a soldier for The Colony—the very people he's trying to escape. 

Live the life within his reach, or continue chasing the one just beyond his grasp? He need only submit.

Popularity isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Justin Marshall knows this better than most. For the captain of the basketball team, small business owner, and son of Minnesota's next governor, life can get pretty overwhelming. But Justin can handle anything as long as he has Lucy, the girl who fell for the man he’s trying to be.

But for Justin and Lucy, finding time together proves challenging. Stolen kisses and whispered promises just aren't enough. That is, until scandalous photos of the couple are leaked to a press intent on creating a juicy scandal during Justin's dad's gubernatorial campaign. And when Lucy becomes fair play for the tabloids and gossip pages, Justin does the only thing he can to protect her: he breaks her heart.

For Lucy, junior year is everything she hoped it would be: new friends, second chances, and a boyfriend she can’t stop kissing. That is, until the boy she’s pretty sure she loves chooses the life his family wants for him, over her.

Now it’s up to Lucy to teach him what it really means to have everything. Because for Justin, being who everyone needs him to be just might cost him the one person he can’t live without.
