Brenda Novak


It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda 
Novak’s bestselling author career.

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with 
cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was 
away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that 
I needed to do something from home.”

However, writing was the last profession she expected to 
undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a creative 
bone in her body. In school, math and science were her best 
subjects, and when it came time to pick a major in college,
 she chose business.

Abandoning her academic scholarship to Brigham Young 
University at the age of 20 in order to get married and start 
a family, Brenda dabbled in commercial real estate, 
then became a loan officer.

“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five 
years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” 
Brenda admits. “I learned how to write by reading what 
others have written. The best advice for any would-be author: read, read, read….”

Brenda sold her first book, and the rest is history. Many of 
her novels have won or placed in contests such as the 
National Reader's Choice, the Bookseller's Best, the Write 
Touch, the Award of Excellence and the Beacon Award for 
Published Authors.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are 
the proud parents of five children—three girls and two boys. 
She juggles her writing career with her children’s softball and 
soccer games, field trips, carpool runs and homework sessions.

When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, 
Brenda is usually working on her annual fundraiser for 
diabetes research—an on-line auction held at her website 
May 1st – May 31st. Her youngest son, Thad, has diabetes,
 and Brenda is determined to help him and others like him. 
She also enjoys traveling, watching sporting events and 
biking--she rides an amazing 20 miles every day!

**** Review & Release of Bought (Assassin’s Revenge #2) by Tara Crescent ****

Bought (Assassin’s Revenge #2) by Tara Crescent
April 15, 2015

The first book was freaking amazing! Book Two was even better. I can not wait to read the rest of the series. In this first book the two main leads go by different names so for my review I call them by him and her. Our leading lady is ruthless, she is out for revenge and will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. Our leading man tells her he a thief but we find out he is a lot more than that. and just maybe they have the same goal. Unfortunately they only have one night together, or so they think. Then in book two she has to sell herself as a submissive to man named in Alexander, but when she finds out it is the same man she is at a lose as what to do. of course he recognize her even if she is thinner and changed her hair. As they spend time together she becomes more caring of him but still thinks he is the bad gut and dose not remember her. Then at the end when she dose something she should not do. I was shocked myself by what she found. man I want the next book.  but if you pick up this series after all books are out get them all you will have to know what happens.

I hope you enjoy this book as Much as I did.

If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review.

The Authors really like it when you do, they value your opinions too.

I have a mission. Kill the man who kidnapped me. Kill the guards who raped me. I have guns and knives and I’m not afraid to use them. Nothing will stop me.

Then I walk into a bar and I notice him. He is gorgeous. For four long years, my only response to anything sexual has been revulsion and fear. This time, it feels different.

I could use him. I want to use him. I could sleep with him and make a pleasurable memory as a counterpoint to the painful ones. I’m not a frightened young girl anymore. I’m a trained assassin, capable of killing him with my bare hands.

This time, I’ll be in control.

He’s just supposed to be a distraction, this mysterious man in the bar that I have a one-night stand with. But I can't predict the secrets he is hiding... secrets that are about to intersect my world in painful, unanticipated, and dangerous ways.


~*~*~ TARA CRESCENT ~*~*~

Hello, I’m Tara Crescent. I've always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true!

Sort of.

By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit, and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)

I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in.

I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work. My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.

From time to time, I blog about what I’m writing at The blog is also where I post book excerpts; highlight information about upcoming promotions, and so on and so forth. Follow me there to keep up with all the fun!
