EvelynI pray to be forgiven for my sins, but the prayers of someone like me won’t dare breach the edge of heaven.Sins. All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I’m not God. Some sins are far more wretched than others. And those sinners should pay, Evelyn. One sinner made me his sin, and I can’t let men like him live. They must face their judgement, Evelyn. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One.

Ezra James is no different, and I wanted to kill him, I needed to kill him, I’m was going to kill him…And then I found myself fascinated by him, obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him.

Ezra

The son of a whore, raised by gangsters, moulded into a key player in a corrupt world ruled by money and completely without morals.

This world can break a person. I’ve seen it time and time again. I never gave a shit, until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of a woman so broken she made even me feel whole. My little killer called to my depravity and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her.

Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels, where others stand in plain sight.

Damned. Broken. Irredeemable.

Through blood, absolution shall be found.

Michel’s Review

I love it when authors find a way to keep their beloved characters alive long after their series has finished and create a new series that brings new characters into the limelight. Bella Jewel has created a new series that features the children of the Sinners MC. Their stories are completely different from their parents. Their lives and friendships have been influenced by their parents positions in the MC but they have managed to carve out their own individuality and life.

MC Sinners Next Generation Series can be read as a stand alone series or after the MC Sinners series. Either way, the reader will become engrossed in these dynamic characters lives. Pandemonium is the first book in this new series.

Ava has been the princess of the Sinners MC. With her father being the president and her brother in law the vice president, she is royalty. She was born into the life but was protected from the violent business side. Now that she is an adult she is fiercely demanding her independence. She wants to make her own destiny in life outside of the MC.

She has a good job at a busy law firm. She has her own apartment. She pays her own bills. She dictates her own schedule. There are times when her father’s world bleeds over into her world. She has learned to be cautious, exercise safety, and keep silent about the club’s activities. When one of her father’s enemies abducts her and forces her to become a part of something that will destroy her, it crumbles the new life she has worked so hard to build. It destroys her confidence, her inner strength, and her ability to cope. She keeps this locked deep within her soul, she does not want her family or friends to feel responsible for her downfall. There is only one person that understands what she is going through. That person is also one of her father’s enemies. He is a different kind of enemy and a much stronger threat than the corrupt enemies in her father’s world. He is a cop with a vendetta against the MC Sinners. One wrong revelation could destroy her father and his world. But he is also a man that understands devastation to the soul.

Lucas has been through hell and back. He has never really recovered from the tragedies that set his life on the path he’s following now. The MC Sinners had a small hand in his life’s destruction and he has been trying to bring them down. When he finds out the beautiful young woman that he rescued is the president’s daughter, it puts him in a peculiar position. He wants to help Ava find herself once again and not become a damaged soul like he is. He wants this beautiful woman to find her strength. He wants her to have faith in herself. On the other hand she is a source of information that could bring down the club. She is his ticket for revenge for the destruction of his family.

~~~

The choices are not black and white. The perceptions of what happened aren’t completely accurate. The MC Sinners are not the evil foes he once believed them to be. As Ava’s downfall spirals out of control, Lucas and the MC Sinners may find they have more in common than they thought. They may have the same enemy.

The most important thing for both Lucas and the MC Sinners is that Ava heals and becomes the woman she was meant to be. Her soul is on the line. They will all have to show her that love can conquer anything.

Bella Jewel did a magnificent job writing this book. The terrifying emotional journey that Ava had to travel was very real. The heartbreak that Lucas had to experience was devastating. Jackson’s frustration of being a parent and not being able to help his child was heartbreaking. Finding love in an ugly situation was exalting.

Pandemonium was an emotional page turner that kept me captive to the last word.

By Penelope Ward

A Contemporary (Stand Alone) Romance Novel

Release Date: February 15, 2015

Pre Order: ITunes

Synopsis

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

 

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

 

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

 

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

 

The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

 

I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

 

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

 

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

 

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

 

Author’s note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Michel’s Review

Sin & Suffer by Pepper Winters is the explosive conclusion of the Pure Corruption MC series, the sequel to Ruin & Rule.

This dynamic series is a dark, gritty, biker romance with pyschological thriller undertones.  It contains violence, harsh language, criminal activities, and is sexually explicit.  It is not for all readers and is not the typical romance.

The setting is in the swamplands of Florida.  It’s two MC’s at war.  Both are vying for power and pure corruption.  But… it’s more than two clubs vying for power.  It is an ongoing battle between father and son, on opposite sides of the battlefield.  One is pure evil and the other is pure heart.  Sin & Suffer is the final confrontation that could once again cost Chloe and Author their happiness and could very well be the end of their lives.  Only the strongest will survive.

Pepper Winters once again delivered an emotional and gritty story that will keep the readers on the edge of their seats.  The conclusion is powerful.  The journey is was brutal.

I am a huge Pepper Winters fan.  I love her style of writing and boldness of writing the dark side of humanity.  Although I enjoyed the Pure Corruption MC series, it was not my favorite works by her.  I found Sin & Suffer to be too repetitive throughout the book.  I found myself skipping over passages to get to the next scene to see what happens next.  Also I found the authenticity of the story was off.  The setting is in Florida but it never felt like the Florida atmosphere.  The descriptions of scenery was off the mark.  Also the choice of words that the characters used throughout both books was not how an American, let alone a biker, would use in conversations or thoughts.  American Bikers ride bikes or cycles, they do not ride motorbikes.  They put gas in their tanks not petrol.  There were so many dialect mishaps that I found myself getting irritated. I was also conflicted with the MC world, it was quite different than most MC worlds.  Add the business tycoon to the mix and it just didn’t quite fit.  I want to escape in a story and I want to become a part of that world while I am reading it.  I want it to feel authentic.  I just could not completely connect with this series.

Overall, Sin & Suffer is a very good book.  The Pure Corruption series is very good and I would  recommend it other readers.

Excerpt

“Come now, Miss Tempest, my uncle expects me to dance with one of you,” he said as he came wavering up to her. “You cannot stand here all night.”

She looked around for her sister, Lady Aveley. Anyone. “I-I-I, oh dear. Mr. Rowland, I don’t believe—” she stammered out, even as Mr. Rowland took her hand, his strong, sure fingers lacing around hers.

No man had ever just come up and claimed her before for the simple reason that Kempton was a small village, and everyone knew (thanks in no small part to Mrs. Bagley-Butterton) that dancing with Lavinia was akin to asking to have your toes trimmed—or those of your neighbors—or to have something valuable broken.

Or a section of your house scorched.

Mr. Rowland, completely unaware of the mortal danger into which he was placing himself and a good portion of London society, just caught hold of her hand and tugged her out onto the floor, utterly and completely deaf to her protests.

“No, please, sir, I don’t think this is wise,” she told him. And she meant it. This was a very bad notion.

But unfortunately, her protests had no effect on Mr. Rowland, horrible scoundrel that he was …

Has that been mentioned as yet? That Mr. Alaster Rowland, the presumptive heir to his uncle’s barony, is the worst sort of knave? It should be. And often.

He was also the most handsome devil Lavinia Tempest had ever met. Or had held her hand. Or smiled down at her with a wicked light in his eyes.

Lavinia had never seen brown eyes hold that sort of promise, the kind that sent a shiver of something so delicious, so dangerous, down her spine that she made a note right there and then to add a new rule to her list at her first opportunity:

No. 83. A proper gentleman should not make one’s insides get so very warm.

In truth, as Mr. Alaster Rowland slid his hand around her waist, took her other hand in his, something altogether improper happened to Lavinia.

It had to be improper, for it certainly wasn’t proper.

“Mr. Rowland, I cannot,” she protested one last time, when to her horror, the band struck up a cotillion.

A cotillion? The last time she’d tried to dance a cotillion, Lady Essex’s house, Foxgrove, had caught fire.

Yet here was Mr. Rowland, laughing and leaning closer. “But of course you can,” he whispered in her ear, his breath warm against her skin.

It was as if he had brushed his fingers there —right against the curve of her neck. It was so intimate, so promising a gesture, that it left Lavinia in a blinding daze.

Yet Lavinia, the girl who had made a study of all things proper, knew exactly how to behave when all was proceeding at a proper pace, but right now she was being steered down a path she’d never taken before and assailed by a river of improper desires.

At least she assumed they were desires, for it was a dangerous, heady sort of warmth spreading through her limbs.

That, and something else happened. Her feet—which before had always seemed two sizes too big—untangled. It was as if the warmth of Mr. Rowland’s touch, his teasing glance, his confidence in her, awakened a very graceful part of her.

Lavinia straightened, head held just so, and a long-forgotten admonishment from the dancing master Lady Hathaway had hired years ago, tripped through her thoughts.

Dancing is all about elegance.

And right there and then, Lavinia felt elegant. Not because her gown was proper. Or that she was standing on the dance floor of Almack’s (though that certainly helped) but because the man gazing down at her held her, not at arm’s length and in obvious fear, but with all the proper care and respect of a gentleman.

Moments later, Lavinia Tempest found herself dancing.

Perfectly. Like a lady. Mr. Rowland moved, as did everyone else, and Lavinia moved as well.

And in the right direction.
