A reporter and the thief he’s investigating both fall for a golden dancer, forging a ménage of love and lies that could send one to prison and one to the morgue.

Mac Macallister is obsessed—the online news reporter needs enough evidence to write a story accusing billionaire art collector Daniel Terrebone of stealing the Golden Dancer, a priceless work of art, from Horst Von Berg. The story promises the recognition Mac craves. But then Mac meets a real golden dancer, ballet star Trelain Medveyev, and his attraction to the man rocks his formerly straight world.

When the mysterious Terrebone ‘collects’ this beautiful dancer, too, Mac rushes to the rescue like a knight in shining cargo pants and plunges into a three-way passion that tears him between love and guilt. Can Mac keep investigating when his story could send one man to prison and another to the morgue? Will this reporter get his story or get his men?

Blurb:

“Look smart ass. This is the last time I’m going to remind you about breaking sections of the lease. If there’s a next time, I won’t stop until you and your frilly, white wedding shit is thrown out of here. Do you got it?!”

Wylde looked in Jacob’s pained eyes and answered in his deep voice. “Yeah, counselor. I got it.”

From high school, up until he became a successful attorney Jacob Snowden was convinced that love had it out for him. “Everyone left,” were the words he lived by. His mother, his high school sweetheart, his father, and his fiancé, all left Jacob just when he felt it was safe to let down his guard. Not any longer. Jacob was a determined man, set at keeping people at a distance. If his six foot one, military-made body didn’t scare people off, his permanent scowl surely did. At almost forty, Jacob’s social life was non-existent, but he told himself his work fulfilled him. He helped people get out of their loveless marriages. Jacob Snowden was one of the best divorce lawyers on the east coast and was damn proud of it. So, imagine his disdain when a wedding planner moves into the suite directly adjacent to his… an insanely masculine, male wedding planner.

Wylde Sterling had made quite a name for himself in his hometown of Roanoke, Virginia, working for a wedding planner that catered to the elite. He was known for his charm and impeccable taste. Yep, he was incredible at giving couples the wedding of their dreams. But he wanted nothing more than to plan his own. After striking out in love more times than he cared to admit, Wylde decided to start his own business in a new city, hoping Richmond would give him a fresh start. Things started out wonderfully – until he started to piss off the angry divorce attorney next door.

Wylde could see past Jacob’s mean scowl, knowing there was a reason for it. It was the man’s defense mechanism, his means of keeping people away. Everything in Wylde told him to stay away, but he believed Jacob just needed to meet a man who had been hurt as badly as he had.

Review:

I’m slightly biased when it comes to Ms. Via’s books. Since the first time i picked up Nothing Special I have been hooked. This author easily grabs the readers attention from the very beginning of each book and holds it till the very end. I have yet to find one of her books that i did not like.

This new book, The Secrets in My Scowl, is a little different from what we normally see. While the main characters are still strong alpha personalities, it is their occupations and the world they live in that makes this a change from previous stories.

Wylde is a wedding planner. He’s been working for someone else but has finally decided to branch out on his own. He has found the perfect town, the perfect location, and the perfect employees. What he does not plan for is the rough divorce attorney across the hall from him.

Jacob is an ass. Yes, he works in a field that can leave a negative effect in a persons life, but it’s more than that. At first i could not believe that the author put someone like him in the role of main character. Not so much because he is a little rough around the edges, but because of the way he treats others. But as you read, and learn more about him, Jacob’s actions become understandable. It wasn’t too long before i started to feel for Jacob, but still worried that he was too broken to be what Wylde needed.

The chemistry between these two is intense and it is not to long before Jacob and Wylde become couple. It is at this time that Jacob begins to change, becoming the man that both he and Wylde can be proud of. I loved that even though Wylde knew the pitfalls that lay ahead of him, the love he has for Jacob was strong enough to see things through. I especially loved that as soon as Wylde realizes that something is wrong, he drops everything to head to Jacob.

Readers will love the way the author wraps up this story. It is a wonderful start for anyone who wants to give this author a try. The Secrets in My Scowl may not be as action packed as the author’s other books, but it is just as good. By the time the book ended, I wanted to see more of these two. I will definitely be reading this book again, as the book will join Ms. Via’s other stories on my keeper shelve.

Blurb:

Music journalist Bryan Gallagher’s life has completely changed in an unexpected way. Not only has he snagged a dream assignment as the memoirist to alternative music’s rock superstar Aubrey King, but he’s also promised to give the beautiful and enigmatic musician a chance for them to forge a relationship. It’s all very overwhelming for Bryan since, up until he spent a sexually charged day and night with Aubrey, Bryan has never even dreamed of being with a man.

Aubrey is completely smitten with the boyishly handsome, young rock writer, Bryan. After their instant spark grows into something more, Aubrey is desperate to keep Bryan by his side for always. He’s promised Bryan that their love is for real, that Bryan isn’t simply one of his rock star conquests.

Their road isn’t an easy one, though. Despite their deepening bond and growing need for each other, other factors intrude. Neither Aubrey nor Bryan is ready to come out, and their relationship needs to remain a carefully guarded secret. In addition, Aubrey has to answer to the demands of his profession and Bryan has to traverse the shifting waters between his personal and business relationship with his famous lover.

Then a secret is revealed and everything in their joint world implodes. When a love is so strong that two men can barely take a breath without thinking of the other, will that be enough to bridge the loss of trust? The only way they can rock their love forever is if Aubrey can reach Bryan before it’s too late.

Review:

Rockin It Forever is the newest book by author Morticia Knight. This is a story that fans of the music, especially rock and roll, theme will enjoy. I especially like how the author started the story and introduced the main characters.

One of our main characters is Bryan. He’s an author who specializes in writing books about musicians. He’s so good at his job that he’s been requested to help write Aubrey’s story. Aubrey is a superstar trying to restart his career. He’s agreed to meet with Bryan but other than getting his story out there Aubrey isn’t expecting too much. Both men are shocked by the instant attraction they feel and by the fact that they spent their first weekend together in bed. When it’s clear that both want a relationship, the real problems begin.

I really liked this book. The characters pull you in to their story from the beginning. They are easily liked and you can’t help but hope everything will work out for them. Because both men are in the closet and feel that it is important that they stay that way, I wondered just how that would end up affecting their relationship.

In the beginning the men are able to continue their relationship in secret and everything looks as if it will work out, yet, you are waiting for the next shoe to fall. When the angst enters the story, it hits big time and even though you know the author will be bringing you a HEA, you wonder just how she is planning to accomplish it.

Rockin It Forever is a book that I plan on re-reading again. Fans of this author are sure to love the story and if you have not yet tried anything by Ms. Knight, it is the perfect book to start with.
