Action, Adventure, and a good woman—that’s all I crave.
A chance to prove my love for a woman by risking my life for her.
Everyone else gets to do it, so why not me?
Except, I never imagined she would vanish without a trace.
I thought she had been taken by a gang or a serial killer.
It turns out, she’s what they call a runner.
Yeah, you heard me right. She runs when people get too close to her.
And not because she has emotional baggage or something.
She doesn’t like people, which I don’t get.
I’m great people!
That night playing Battleship will go down in the books as one of the best nights of my life.
But apparently, I scared her off when I said I was coming back for her.
And then she landed herself in a Russian prison.
And of course, now she needs me to come to the rescue.
Yeah, I’ll do it. She’s my girl. Why wouldn’t I?
I just hoped she’d never see the one weapon I always deploy.
Tactical Vomit.


This was one hilarious read from the moment you started turning the pages we were laughing our butt off. The characters were fantastic the crew's antics and teasing is hilarious as well we laughed so hard at times we thought we were going to pee our pants. LOL

Quinn will always be a memorable character she was such a fun character the situations she got herself in were hilarious and the way she chose to deal with those situations was comical. 

Scottie we loved him and how he was building a fire motto it was so sweet and thoughtful and we thought it was an awesome move as well as jester on his part. We saw a side of Scottie that was sweet and kind and loving. The situations he got himself embroiled in to win his girl had us laughing until we shed tears.

The story was funny and action packed the plot fantastic and we were introduced to some new team members that we are looking forward to getting to know. 

Quinn and Scottie had chemistry and were perfect for one another. I love that these men choose women that are complicated and go to great lengths to win their heart and love.

In conclusion we can't express how much we loved this story and that it was such a fun read that we laughed through the entire story and its a story that will be read over and over again when we need a really good laugh. Need to give a special shout out to Fox in this story his antics made the story even more enjoyable. We just loved his character.






★★★★★ BooksnNooks4Me - “Remarkable! Hilarious! Got Your Six is the sixth book in Owens Protective Services (OPS). I absolutely love this series!”
★★★★★ Sexy Sirens Book Blog - “Oh My Gosh, I just love Ms. Giulia’s books. As a rule they are funny, entertaining, suspenseful and romantic storylines all rolled up into one.”

 





“Hey,” I nodded as I approached. “I was wondering if I could get you a hotel for the night.”

He looked past me to Quinn. “Why?”

“Well… I’m sort of on a date, and it’s an important one. Only one chance to seal the deal, if you know what I mean.”

“I’m a guy. Of course I know what you mean.”

I held out my hands. “So…how about it? I can get you a really nice suite at the Holiday Inn.”

He huffed out a laugh. “No thanks. I’ll stay in my room.”

He tried to walk past me, but I stepped in his way. “Yeah, that’s not going to work for me. See, I’m trying to build a fire with her.”

“A what?” he asked, looking at me funny.

“A fire. See, I’ve got the safe spot. If you leave, the area is clear of debris. The ground is moist, but not wet enough to make it difficult to start the fire.”

“What?”

“And I have the tinder bed all ready. I’m getting ready to add the kindling, but if you show up, I’ll never get to pull out the flint and create that spark.”

“Shouldn’t you already have a spark?”

I rolled my eyes. This guy just wasn’t getting it. “Man, this isn’t a race. I’m not looking to throw some lighter fluid on it and toss in a match. I want to nurture the flame and watch it grow. I want a fucking forest fire.”

“You know, that’s really not safe. Forest fires kill people and have astronomical geological effects.”

I squeezed my eyes shut, pressing my fist to my mouth so I didn’t explode. “It’s a metaphor. I’m not actually building a fire!”

“Oh, sorry. I got lost in the whole build-up of it.”

“So, you get what I’m saying?”

“I think so. Although, I’m not sure you needed the whole fire thing. It was a little weird, to be honest.”

“You’re a little weird. You live with this insanely hot woman and you haven’t made a move.”

“I thought it would ruin the working relationship.”

“Yeah, that’s a tough move. Not many can do it,” I agreed. “There’s a lot of planning that goes into something like that.”

“Exactly. Plus, she’s really not the type to go back for seconds.”

“Which is why you need to build a fire, my friend.”

He grinned at me and held out his hand. “Alright, I’ll stay somewhere else for the night. Good luck with the tinder.”

He turned to leave, but I grabbed him by the sleeve. “Hey, do you have any games at the apartment?”

He jerked his arm out of my grasp and shot me a disgusted look. “You want to borrow sex toys?”

“No, you idiot. Games. Battleship, Twister…”

“Oh…for sex?”

“No, just to play!” I nearly shouted. “We’re building a fire here, remember?”





I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.










Blitz & Giveaway for Queen of the Underworld by Felicity Heaton

Queen of the Underworld
Felicity Heaton
(A Guardians of Hades Series Prequel)
Publication date: January 31st 2023
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Hades, the wickedly dark god-king of the Underworld, needs a queen…

And he’s chosen Persephone.

All Persephone has ever desired is control of her own life, and someone noticing her once in a while. Kept in her mother’s shadow, and overlooked by the entirety of Olympus, her dream seems impossible… and now she’s doomed to wed a dull god of her mother’s choosing…

Until she crosses paths with a handsome, dark warrior who rouses wildfire heat in her veins—a male whose immense power is unmistakable, and who matches the fearful tales whispered in Olympus—stories of a cruel, heartless king who rules his realm of death with an iron fist.

When Hades abducts her and imprisons her in the depths of the Underworld, a dormant part of her awakens. And as she slowly discovers the truth about him, Persephone isn’t sure whether the snarling, dark beast of a king is her doom… or her saviour… but she knows one thing…

She will embrace the fire he awakens in her with every heated glance, and every vicious growl.

And use it to tame him and forge her dreams into reality.

Because, Persephone, the quiet, gentle goddess of nature, desires a king.

And nothing will stop her from claiming his black heart.

Queen of the Underworld is a forced proximity, enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance novel retelling the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone, and a prequel in my Guardians of Hades series. In the vein of an adult beauty and the beast, it features a grumpy-sunshine pairing that will steal your heart, with a secretly cinnamon roll hero and a secretly fiery heroine, and a powerful forever kind of love. All Guardians of Hades books have no cliffhangers, a guaranteed happily ever after, and some strong language.

EXCERPT:

Feminine voices curled through the trees, a trio of them speaking while one continued her siren’s song, luring him towards her.

Hades stilled where rock met grass and tried to pinpoint their owners with his senses. One was closer to him than the other three, who were all grouped together at a distance. He edged to his right, his focus on that single female, curiosity rising within him again to have him trying to catch a glimpse of her.

That desire to catch just a glimpse transformed into something else—something powerful and demanding—as her soft voice grew closer, her song growing clearer, and he smelled the faintest hint of lilies.

Heat curled through his veins, that scent rousing a fierce need that thrummed in every inch of his body and had the darkness writhing harder, violently attempting to wrench control from him and make him find the owner of it. He needed to see her. He couldn’t remember the last time he had smelled such a delicate scent. His world was ash and smoke and blood, and death.

Everything about this female seemed to be the opposite of what he knew.

Her song teased his ears as her scent teased his nose, and his breath caught in his throat as he was swept up in her—a female he hadn’t even seen yet. Not just the man in him either. The darker side of him burned with a desire to see her too. He needed to know if her beauty matched her voice and her scent. He loosed a low growl and took another step forwards, remaining just within the shadows of the cave, the powerful need to see her colliding with a wariness of disturbing her.

He inched further to his right and straightened to his full six-eight height, the hard black plates of his armour shifting as he strained to catch a glimpse of her. He felt as if he wasn’t master of his own body as he tried to spot her, but it wasn’t the darkness in control of his actions.

It was the pressing desire to see her.

She was moving closer, but no matter where he moved, the trees blocked his view. His claws itched with the need to attack them until they were nothing more than splinters of wood and his view was clear of the obstruction.

He moved the other way, tracking her with his senses, and discovering something intriguing.

She was strong.

Not mortal.

There were mortals near to her though. The other three females. Were they her servants?

What goddess had come to this place, so far from Olympus or Poseidon’s realm?

Her power caressed his, grazing it lightly in a way that urged him onwards and made him forget about the mortals as it cranked up the desperation to see her.

Because he had never felt anything like her power.

It was light. Warmth. Goodness.

It was everything he wasn’t.

Hades edged closer, a predator stalking his prey, his mind churning with dangerous thoughts that roused the darker side of his blood and brought it to the fore again. Perhaps the Moirai had brought him here after all, seeking to give him something he desired for once, an attempt to appease him. Poseidon had his new queen. Zeus had his. Hades hadn’t even seen this female, but already his blood burned for her. The brush of her power against his and the delicate beauty of her voice were enough to entrance him and rouse his desire to an unbearable degree.

He wanted this female.

The thought of her warming his bed had his blood quickening.

It had been too long since he had taken a female, his duties keeping him too busy to indulge in such things as his brothers did. But he had the feeling it wasn’t his ignored physical needs that had his body aching for this female.

It was something else.

He growled low, baring his fangs, and his breaths came faster still as he moved to his right. He glared at the trees that continued to deny him, blocking his view. There had to be a better vantage point, one that would allow him to see more than tree trunks and the leafy scrub that covered the ground in places.

He froze, his entire body locking up tight.

His breath gusted from him.

A striking scarlet-haired maiden stepped into view.

She was beauty and light wrapped in flawless pale skin and rosy cheeks and pink lips that beckoned him, awakening something fierce in him as her tongue poked out to wet them. His breath lodged in his throat as he gazed at her, his awareness of the world destroyed and something fundamental inside him changing from just the sight of her. She was perfection, and she roused not only the man in him, but the darkness. It growled at him, sharpening his fangs and his nails as it whispered a fierce demand that echoed the desire that thrummed in his blood and beat in his heart.

Take her.
