The Getaway by Riley Ross

Juliet gives an answer to Mike’s surprising proposal and they are on a mad scramble to pull off a wedding in six days. Will it go off without a hitch or will someone try to destroy their happiness. Come along for the conclusion of The Getaway for Season 1

The Genesis Project by Tigris Eden

A choice is made, and a secret is revealed. All are not what they seem to be in this last installment of The Genesis Project. Xander knows who and what Gen is, but there is still one piece to the puzzle missing. This ending is promised to leave you all up in arms! Be sure to find out what happens to the conclusion of The Genesis Project for Season 1

Crave by Ty Langston
Desperate for a way out, the missing Darien Anderson resurfaces. The reasons why she was captured were not for the reasons everyone thought.

The answers will not only shock all, but also have a tremendous rippled effect for all involved. Especially, Cass and Harper at the conclusion of Crave.


This is not normally my style of novel - I don't go for the thigh clencher romances or short stories. But I'd read the first set and reviewed them here, and they weren't so bad, so I thought I'd better go for the second episode, and reviewed that here. Then of course, I had to finish out the season.

Once again the first short story was The Getaway. There was plenty of family tension once again, although I felt that it was obvious what the ending would be from the beginning. I was surprised at the marriage suggestion, but then this is something I feel isn't really necessary to prove love (and anyway, they were already having sex!!).

The text and dialogue was completely stilted to me (just as I complained about before), but at least the  author was consistent. There was far too much of 'She did this... She did that... She does this...' and so one. This was particularly obvious in the cafe and also restaurant they go to eat in. Also some weird tense changes and breaking of the third wall.

The sexy action was mainly hinted at with passionate kisses and sexy underwear, with no explicit sex. Plenty of romance though! Romance, romance, crying, sentimentalism. If you like that kind of thing, you're going to like this.

This time CRAVE  drew itself to a thrilling, but not precisely satisfying conclusion. It was gripping enough that I stopped noticing some of the carelessness in misplaced " and changed tenses. The beginning felt really rushed.

There were some new ideas introduced in this section that made it more interesting and kept me reading. Darien reappeared, sort of, and the changes in perspective added to the story. There's a fair bit more graphic sex here, but I wasn't satisfied precisely with the way it was written. It felt crude to me, and so I skipped parts of it.

The Genesis Project saves the day for me once again. Some nice revelations, some really hot sex scenes (way better than the other two in my opinion) and of course a thrilling conclusion. Yay! Genesis! And this time we get the explanation for where the title of the novella has come from. Poor Gen, she's so confused.

I'd recommend this book for adults only. It does come with a tag of erotica, and in this case that means explicit descriptions of sex and so forth. I don't think I'm going to sign up to review season 2, as I find myself not really enjoying 2/3 of the parts. The Genesis Project I'm still going for, but other than that, not really, I can use my reading time more productively.

I received this book free as part of a tour, but this has no way influenced my review.

A great continuation in the Romantic Tales series. Three stories by three great authors. Make sure you pick up the first two episodes before reading this one! 

The Getaway leaves us felling content with where the story is at. 

Crave finds us with a cliffhanger that will have you screaming for more! 

The Genisis Project is such a unique story and continues to amaze! 

Can't wait for more!

Ty Langston

As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so
much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them."
So she did.
From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of
music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction,
and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.
She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie
Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors
creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.
Ty has a certificate in Broadcast Journalism along with a degree in Business Administration.
She is single and enjoys spending time with friends and family.

Riley Ross

To date I haven't published anything yet but I love to write wrestling fan fiction, romance and
light erotica. I will be married for fifteen years this month to my best friend and Prince Charming
all rolled into one. I am mommy to two Syberian Huskies.
