He’s the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing motherpucker on the ice…

When you’re named after the king of the gods, the world expects certain things of you.

Tough? Damn right.

Smart? Don’t let the hockey uniform fool you.

Large and in charge? Honey, I’m the biggest, baddest, mother pucking-est machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t come early, but I come often, if you know what I mean. And I always leave the ladies wanting more.

Until that chick last night.

I’m no one-thrust wonder, and you’re damn right I’m going to prove to her I can do better. But every time I think I’m finally on my way back into her pants, she one-ups and out-balls me.

I should cut my losses, lick my wounds, and walk away.

But Zeus Berger doesn’t walk away from anything.

Especially when she's the only woman in the world who might be able to handle me.

The Pilot and the Puck-Up is a standalone romantic comedy featuring a hockey player whose ego is the only thing bigger than his shoe size, the most badass woman to ever fly a plane, rubber chockey (don't ask), and no cheating or cliffhangers.

Excerpt

Zeus Berger (aka the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing mother pucker to ever play in the NHL)

Coconuts are itchy. I should’ve gone for the watermelons.

But it was a bitch and a half getting that last-minute private fitting at Madame Cosette’s anyway, and the woman probably would’ve had to stitch three bras together and then nailed the damn contraption to my shoulders to get it to hold without losing a melon, so coconuts it is.

Besides, it’s the heels that are gonna be the bigger problem. Damn good thing I have ankles of fucking steel.

And my minidress is stretched to max capacity over the coconuts anyway. It’s also in danger of showing my other coconuts, if you catch my drift. And there’s definitely a drift—or is that a draft?—on my other coconuts.

A wolf whistle echoes through the swanky private clubhouse where I’m strolling in with my twin brother on my left and my brother from another mother on my right. A passing server drops a tray of champagne. Conversation stops. And a bunch of stuffy golf pricks gape at us like we’re a mutant alien circus freak show crashing their million-dollar wedding reception.

We’re three dudes who have more money than God, more muscles than all the Kardashians’ bodyguards combined, and more fun than cotton candy and roller coasters.


Review

Joey “Fireball” Diamonte is a woman that doesn't take crap from anyone and especially from men. She's didn't get where she is today by being some damsel in distress needing a knight in shinning armor to come rescue her. And the last thing she needs is this hulking tall drink of water.

Zeus Berger is a brute on and off the ice and no woman has ever made him think about love, fairy tales, and all that jazz. The only thing that scares him are spiders and maybe his sister. But he's about to meet his match in the form of one feisty pilot.

Their attraction seems unlikely but there's a pull there that neither can deny. The more the fire grows between, the less this relationship stars to feel like it's just a fling.

Can they really makes this a lasting relationship or will they crash and burn faster then a jet going Mach 10?

The Pilot & the Puck-Up is a fun, witty, saucy read that will have the reader laughing out loud while making knees weak and hearts swoon.

Joey is definitely a fireball you can't help but fall in love with. I love all her sassy comebacks, giving as good or better as she gets. I adore her willingness to give love and Zeus a try even though she's scared.

Zeus is everything you think a big, brute of a hockey player could be, but there is more than meets the eye. He's got a heart of gold and really nothing more than huge teddy bear. He's the guy that will always be there for his family and friends no matter what.

The passion between Joey and Zeus ignites right from the start and only intensifies as the story progresses. I love how they both open up to each other while building a strong, long lasting relationship. Zeus may have a few false starts in the beginning, but he's not a man to walk away from a challenge and Joey is a challenge he wants to win.

I love, love, love Joey and Zeus. They are fun, sexy, and completely adorable. Their journey is so entertaining from cover to cover that you won't want to put it down. Zeus will make is way under your skin and into your heart before you even know what's happening.

I highly suggest that you run and pick up The Pilot & the Puck-Up and find out why readers are falling head over heals for Zeus and Joey. There may be a few bumps in the road, but Zeus will score a goal and win the game in the end.

Release Blitz ~ Captive Lies by Victoria Paige






Wealthy, powerful Grant Thorne is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Blaire, the beautiful angel who saved his life when he was injured in a blizzard. The CEO of Thorne Industries and the son of a Senator, he lives his life in the public eye. Convincing the reclusive artist to be a part of his world won’t be easy, but determination fuels his pursuit.

Blaire Callahan had escaped her dangerous past to create a new life for herself, or so she thought, until one night she rescues a handsome stranger who rattles her quiet existence. Their chemistry is undeniable, but is it enough to risk her heart and give up the safety of her remote sanctuary?

Dreams of having a life together come to a screeching halt when the couple is photographed at a political event. And when Blaire suddenly vanishes, Grant begins unraveling her past, and realizes the woman he fell in love with was never as she seemed.

Can a woman held captive by the lies of her past really have a future with a man who’s captured her heart? Or will her dangerous past catch up with her and jeopardize their future forever…




He didn’t imagine the spark of interest in her eyes. She was attracted to him but he could see the conflict inside her. Would a quick fling satisfy whatever was brewing between them? As soon as that thought crossed his mind, he dismissed it savagely. The woman saved his life; he needed to leave her alone. His life was on the east coast and he didn’t do long-distance relationships.

With that thought, he decided it was time to get up. He had a feeling he’d been sleeping for some time. He swore viciously as he got off the bed. His ribs hadn’t liked that. When he limped into the hallway, the smell of coffee hit his nose and he realized he’d not had caffeine in almost three days.

An overhead wrought-iron lamp brightened the kitchen, but the whole house was lit by the reflection of snow coming from the windows. A fire was burning in the living room hearth and, as Grant exited the hallway, he spotted Blaire sitting on the kitchen bench in red plaid pajamas. She had one foot raised on the seat and a sketchpad rested on that bent knee. Her hair was tied back in a ponytail, head tilted as she pulled expert strokes of charcoal across paper. He rubbed at his chest, an odd ache forming there. Grant wanted to commit this unguarded moment to memory so he could take it with him when he left.

But when Blaire glanced up and a smile broke across her face, all of Grant’s selfless intentions disappeared. There was no fucking way he was never seeing that smile again.

“You’re awake!” Blaire chirped, setting her sketchpad on the table and jumping up. “Twelve hours, Thorne.”

“You’re shitting me.”

“Nope. You passed out at nine,” his angel informed him. “It’s nine-thirty. Imagine that?”

He grunted.

“How’s the head?”

“Better.”

“Blurred vision?”

“Nope,” he answered, and before she could ask another question. “Coffee?”

“Oh, you’re one of those.” She raised a brow. “The ones who can’t function without caffeine?”

Damn, he wanted to kiss that smart mouth.

“No coffee,” she said. “You’re getting lemon tea—”

“The fuck?”

“And if you still want coffee, you may have a cup.”

Grant was rethinking her nurturing soul. Maybe he’d been hallucinating the past few days. “Do you like torturing your patients?”

“You’re better, aren’t you?” she sassed as she turned around and presented him with her oh-so-shapely ass. She headed to the stovetop to turn on the burner under the kettle. Grant spotted the coffee machine, limp-stalked over to the stove and switched it off.

“Hey—”

“Coffee, woman. None of that lemon tea bullshit.” He started searching the cabinets for a mug. Finding one, he turned around and saw that she had her hands on her hips, her eyes shooting sparks of annoyance at him.

“You’re still sick,” she reminded him.

“And you made me drink fucking spruce tea,” he shot back. “I deserve coffee.”

Grant tagged the pot of brew and poured himself a cup. He took a healthy gulp and enjoyed the burn going down his throat but he had to admit, it wasn’t as effective as spruce or lemon tea.

Blaire threw up her hands. “You’re having oatmeal for breakfast.”

He sighed. “I’m really hungry.”

“I can put some eggs in it,” she offered. “Liam does it and I think it’s disgusting, but I guess you’ll need the calories to maintain those muscles.” Her eyes widened when she caught his smirk “I mean …”

“You perving on my muscles?”

She scowled. “Do you want breakfast?” She spun around and pulled the refrigerator open with a huff. “And I’m not a pervert,” she told the fridge.

“I was teasing, Blaire,” Grant murmured. “You’re cute when you’re flustered.”

She didn’t say anything, and he began to regret teasing her. She was obviously uncomfortable with flirting. But if her flaming cheeks were anything to go by, she was definitely not uninterested. He’d wondered since the night before if, when she blushed, she was pink all over. Grant groaned inwardly. He had felt her bare legs against him, her soft curves against him—maximum body heat. What he would give to experience that closeness again. Except it would end up with him balls-deep inside her. He’d climb over her, wrap her legs around him, shove her panties aside and slide his cock right into her tight heat. And there was his dick rising up to the challenge.

“Grant, are you sure you’re okay?” Blaire asked, a frown creasing her forehead. “You look like you’re in pain.”

You have no idea, Angel.

“Are the phones still down?” he asked as he willed his wayward thoughts to go on a different track.

She nodded. “You’re worried about your sister?”

“The radio didn’t report her missing the same time they reported that I was. I think she’s fine,” he concluded from what Blaire and Liam told him the day before.

“You sound pissed at her,” Blaire observed, stirring the oatmeal into the pot of water.

He lowered himself to the chair and leaned back. Taking another sip of coffee, he contemplated where exactly his headspace was regarding his sister. “I’m caught in the middle of worry and anger. There’s still a chance that something happened to her. Also,” he sighed. “Not being able to get word to my parents that I’m fine is frustrating.”

“I’m sorry,” she whispered.

“Not your fault,” Grant said quickly. “You guys have gone above and beyond for a complete stranger.” And that was why he tolerated Liam’s hostility to a certain point.

“Why were you both out in the snow?”

“Fight with her boyfriend,” he said, his blood starting to boil. “Val got so pissed, she took off on a snow mobile. Fucker didn’t go after her, so I did.”

There was that look on Blaire’s face that tempted him to hug her. The closest word that came to mind was “compassion.” Her face was so expressive, her eyes—he couldn’t even decide what color they were. Dark rimmed around the edges with light brown and green … no, sometimes they were almost blue. The previous night when she stood before him in front of her paintings, she took his breath away. Blaire by firelight was breathtaking.



Victoria Paige writes romantic suspense with badass alpha males and smart, feisty heroines.

Her heroes are possessive, overprotective, and frequently the obsessed, jealous type with a penchant for strong language. Her heroines are strong-willed and intelligent women who can hold their own against a bossy hero. Her books are sexually explicit and may contain dark themes, morally ambiguous choices, and disturbing situations. In short, they are not fluff reads because anything goes in her plots.

Victoria lives in Richmond, VA with her husband and their German Shepherd Dog. When she’s not writing or reading, she’s training her GSD to become a badass himself.

Excerpt

“Do you swim?” he asked, looking a little sheepish.

“Not often. Why?”

He loosened and dropped her sarong next to their shoes, then scooped her up before sauntering out toward the water.

“No! Jake! Put me down! Put me down!” she hollered, kicking her legs trying wiggle free.

Ignoring her pleas, he kept his stride and pressed through the waves until they were about chest deep in the ocean rising up and down with each swell. Still clinging to his neck, she began splashing him with her free hand.

“I can’t believe you did that!” she bellowed, stifling the giggle threatening to escape.

“No?”

“No!”

“Then you probably won’t believe this,” he mocked, as he released her into the next wave.

“Ahhh!” She held her breath as a wave rolled over her and pulled her under.

She knew he’d be waiting for her to surface, so she stayed under as long as possible, intending to make him worry. Finally, her hands shot up, and she gulped for air. He moved faster than lightning, plucking her upward, and pulling her out of the water.

“Gabrielle!” he gasped, “Baby, are you okay?”

Just then, her foot came around his leg and pulled it from beneath him, throwing him off balance and into the surf. Trying not to laugh too hard, she broke free and swam as fast and hard as she could back toward the shore. She could hear him behind her, cursing and laughing in annoyance. Just as she stood up to run, his arm wrapped around her waist from behind and he swung her back up into his arms.

“Oh no, you don’t. Not so fast, missy.”

Kicking her feet and laughing uncontrollably, Gabi yelled, “Let me go! Put me down!”

Smirking, Jake dropped down to his knees, setting her on the sand and covering her yells with his mouth. He kissed her deep and rough, and she tasted the salt from the ocean on his lips. He was intense in the way he possessed her mouth, and she began to relax into his kiss. Remembering what he’d just done, she bit his lip.

Suddenly, she was hauled over his shoulder, butt up in the air as he stood, and then…

smack.

“Jake!”

“Careful Gabrielle, you might earn another.”

“What the hell! You can’t…”

smack

“Yes, I can, and yes, I will. Now watch your mouth.”

Gabrielle was upside down over Jake Thornton’s shoulder on Coronado Beach being smacked on the ass in public. Holy hell! She couldn’t process it. He’d spanked her! Still feeling the heat from his hand on her wet backside, there was something erotic about it, making her quiver with excitement. But they were in broad daylight, dammit! He couldn’t do that to her!

“Jake, put me down!”

“Are you still talking to me like that?” he admonished.

“Jakey, pleeeease put me down,” she taunted.

Smack, smack!

“Owww!”

“Let me know when you’re finished.”
