Bayou Brew Publishing Presents Monique O'Connor James

Monique is the mother of two beautiful children and lives in a small community outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. On her eighth birthday, her mother bought her a journal and said "write whatever you want, just write." And so, a love affair with words was born.
    Her collection of novels and short stories is ever growing as writing is her first true love. Her desire to help other authors gain exposure and hone their craft grew as she navigated the publishing world alone. It is her hope that Bayou Brew Publishing will become a safe place for other writers to share their talents with the world. She believes that any dream is possible if you have the support of a great team.
You can follow Monique on her facebook page HERE
Below are two of her most recent books. There is so many more to choose from. You can look for yourself on Amazon HERE or visit Bayou Brew Publishing for a complete list. 
What if your soul had journeyed through many life times? What if your dreams were memories?
What if your knight in shining armor had always been near, pretending to be someone else?
Your biggest enemy is your best friend. Your parent's murderer is someone near and dear to you. Your life is not what it seemed.
When all is said and done and you found out who you really were, would you unleash Pandora's Box on the world, or find the courage to save humanity.

If you've been cursed by a god, how many lifetimes will the punishment last? When can you finally take a breath and find everything you ever wanted? Will your hopes and dreams be stolen again and again until your soul finally rests forever?

Hotter Than Hot by Milly Silver

Hotter Than Hot Review Tour HTML – Please feel free to use this ready made post. As a blogger I know it's much easier to use the ready made ones vs putting together each one. Feel free to make any changes you like and PLEASE remember to add your review. Thanks! ~Mindy
Hotter Than Hot by Milly Silver

Maggie Lee is Space Cadet 69. She begged for a different number. But no can do. She's stuck with a 69 on her forehead, until she's vaporized. That pretty much sums up Maggie's life.
Stuck in a boring job counting tins of meatballs.
Stuck on the dullest space station in the universe, Lanzarote.
And stuck with no hope of achieving her dream of flying scout ships.
Enter hot guy Hunter in his blinged-up spaceship. Things start to get unstuck for Maggie real fast.

Maggie needs to outwit evil Lord Zagon who wants to kill her for her cherished precognition helmet, find a rare space rock to save her family from suspended animation and flee from giddy space pirates wanting to pimp out her friends to the nearest aliens. Hunter being a sexy space god isn't exactly helping Maggie's concentration levels either.
Can Maggie pull it off? If she doesn't, her family will be frozen forever and Lord Zagon will rule the universe. Then she'll definitely never get to fly scout ships.
*HOTTER THAN HOT is a NA romantic comedy. It's a light, fast read that will keep you laughing all the way through. The perfect beach read!

Hotter Than HotHotter Than Hot by Milly Silver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Only thing I can say about Milly Silver and her "Hotter Than Hot" book is .... LOVED IT. I was totally impressed how her imagination brought romance and comedy together. I loved every bit of this book. You will find hidden dark humor in the book like for example the tattoo that everyone wears on their foreheads and Maggie's is "69." I found my self laughing and then shouting at Maggie to "Go For It!" Then there were times where I wanted to slap Hunter around because lets just face it men need that lol.

Hotter Than Hot is plain HAWT! You see there is an attraction between Maggie and Hunter but they never act on any of it even though they find themselves drawn to each other. Never mind the jealous computer that runs his ship or her high maintenance best friend Stacey. Although they are funny to read about too. Let's not forget about Elvis too now.

Grab your copy. I swear you will not be disappointed. There is nonstop action, comedy, and whatever else Milly Silver can conjure up. The page will somehow keep turning on it's own as you become entranced.

Declan's Wicked Temptation

Declan's Wicked TemptationDeclan's Wicked Temptation by Tiffany Stevens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Author Tiffany Stevens and Publishing Company Bayou Brew Publishing presents to you "Declan's Wicked Temptation"

Caught between love and honor, Declan has a decision to make. Sent from the Heavens to prevent a war from happening, Declan’s mission is to find the prophecy child and ensure he/she doesn’t fulfill their destiny.

Working on a farm in Pine Mountain, Georgia, Declan works his way not only through the land but finds his way into the heart of a small town girl. Not just any small town girl, but what could only be described as the land owner’s niece. No matter how hard he tried to avoid her and deny what he felt as they touch, Declan finally allowed himself to feel what he never knew…Love.

Still hunting for the prophecy child, Declan finds that he is not the only supernatural creature there with the same agenda. The Darkness has sent their own minions to look as well. Time is of the essence and Declan can no longer put off the most important decision of his existence. Does he choose love and take the fall or does choose his honor instead?

Indie BookFest

Ok I hardly get to get in here just to fan girl about anything but I have to tell you about my weekend. Saturday I attended Indie BookFest 2013 in Orlando,FL. Let me just tell you first off I was so nervous. This was my first event ever and I had no idea what to expect. I mean I literally jumped in without any floaties. I was amazed and amazed is not the correct word but I couldn't believe how down to earth everyone was. Every author there was totally awesome. I can't wait for next year, but then again who knows maybe I will have my own here in Georgia. Might be something in the works already :) I'm defiantly doing IBF 2014 and where ever else this road takes me. Peggy did an outstanding job. I have a feeling next year  she will be 10x's better and BIGGER!!

Inkspell Publishing Presents:

Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance
Release Date: August 5, 2013
Two lovers face off against a government determined to keep them apart. It’s only brave if it’s hard. After a decade of being alone in the wilderness, Cressenda is still adjusting to life with the man of her dreams. When Beckett hatches a plan to break her parents out of The Affinity prison work camps, Cressenda must make the biggest sacrifice of her life; trading her freedom for her parents’. Cressenda’s fortitude is tested at every turn, from surviving the conditions of West Fallen work camp to believing in Beckett’s dedication to their plan and their love, even when it looks like all hope is lost. With the help of a unlikely ally, Cressenda learns to stop fighting against her fears and embrace the power of fighting for her dreams. Will trusting Beckett to take down The Affinity be the ultimate show of faith or a fatal mistake?

About Annabelle

Annabelle is a Science Fiction and Urban Fantasy Romance author, that is, when she's not checking homework or begrudgingly cooking dinner. Wife, mother, and creator of alternate worlds, Annabelle has a penchant for that which is outside the norm. Her Sociology degree has given her the ability to construct worlds that exist only in her head and translate them passionately to the page. The time spent studying individuals, interpersonal relationships, and particularly, women, within the constraints of our society led to Annabelle's unabashed ability to talk about sex as it fits into our modern lives.

She's also the author/personality of The Bombshell Mommy at, where she expounds her knowledge of being a vixen clad in sweatpants.

A serial book monogamist, Annabelle is deeply devoted to the literary love of her life until the next amazing book falls into her clutches and she obsesses anew.

Annabelle’s official author page

You can reach her on Twitter @AnnabelleBlume and stay up-to-date via her author Facebook page

Don’t forget to check out the first book

A decade surviving on her own. Three days with the enemy. Can love conquer all?

Cressenda knows how to survive. With her sled dogs as her only companions, she’s spent the past ten years hiding in the snow covered wilderness from the oppressive regime of the Affinity. When a routine trip to civilization takes a turn for the worst, Cressenda is forced to take refuge with the enemy or lose her life to the frozen countryside.

But Beckett, a Guard of the Affinity, is more than a man in uniform. His desperate need to help Cressenda escape both- the blizzard and the Affinity- makes her feelings for him all the more troubling. Will Beckett be true to his word and set Cressenda free? Will her heart let her leave after all they’ve shared?

Sweet ContradictionSweet Contradiction by Peggy Martinez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sweet Contradiction is just fabulous. I loved everything about this book. The fact that Beth gets out on her own after High School and doing her own thing because she wants to escape the life she was forced to live with her bible twisted father was a liberating. I felt like I could breathe better for her while reading it lol. The relationship she has with Jen, her best friend, is just epic. Then there is Matt. What can I say about him other than perfection? I love how Matt tested Beth and coaxed her into seeing that just because of who he was and what he believed in didn't make him and his family like her father. This book does not bash the bible in anyway so leave those type of comments to yourself. It showed the two different life styles based on religion and I just loved the moment she came to realize that too. I won't spoil that scene because I think it was the best one in the whole book. The only way I can describe the book is you can take the girl out of the small town but the small town will always be home sweet home.
