Tempting Signs Series

Fated Desires Publishing


12 Authors. 12 Zodiac Signs. 1 Explosive Series. What seductive, contemporary romance will you find today? GEMINI.


Whoever said fighters can’t be lovers was never a fighter. Any fighter knows that to succeed, he has to be honest with himself – brutally honest. A real fighter knows his strengths, his weaknesses. And he fights and lives with them in mind, no holds barred.


Grant’s weakness is Daniel, an up-and-coming welterweight who once lived, breathed and trained with him before skipping town for the West Coast. Daniel’s weakness is Grant, a light heavyweight champion who disrupted Daniel’s life with an addictive intensity he’s never found in anyone else.
Lila is a woman who grew up cageside and inhabits the same world as Grant and Daniel, a rose among thorns. She’s completely unlike the women they’re used to. And when they’re honest with themselves, they know she’s what they need to be complete.

Ranae Rose scorches readers with her installment in the Tempting Signs series, Gemini Rising.  A quick read that will cause the sweat to drip in and out of the ring. Daniel and Grant’s past love affair cause lingering feeling and a lot of tension in their present.  Lila’s attraction to and from both men has her head in a tail spin. Wishing for taboo fantasies to be real. Whether you prefer the term ménage or polyamory, this m/m/f story is hot. Raw passion and emotions make a sinfully good read. Not a conventional relationship.  Very heavy on the male/male. If that is your cup of tea, Gemini Rising is one for you.

In Sidney Halston’s latest sizzling MMA romance, a former title contender turns the tables on his knockout trainer with a lesson in seduction.Once one of the most sought-after names on the mixed martial arts circuit, Antonio “Scarface” Marino watched his career go down for the count as he chased skirts and made tabloid headlines. Now he’s finally making a comeback, and it’s all thanks to Francesca Silva, a Brazilian bombshell as tough as any of her fighters. But who’s the real Francesca: the trash-talking trainer who rides him hard, or the vulnerable woman who blushes at his touch?Francesca went to the mat to sign Tony because she believes he still has the potential to bring big success to her gym—if she can keep his head in the cage and out of her personal life. After a short-lived marriage soured her on love, a one-night stand is all she can handle. Now Tony’s kisses are stirring up complicated feelings—especially when he agrees to face her ex in the ring. Francesca’s used to freezing guys out. But Tony’s tempting her to give in to the heat.

Heart and passion, in and out of the ring.


Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not a sports fan. I play pool and watch women’s 9 ball. I was beyond surprised to find the amount heart and feeling in a MMA fighting romance book.


Francesca is a tough as nails, balls to the wall’s, fight you as tough as a man kind of girl. Or that’s what she would like everyone to think. A complex character, that knows her own flaws and weaknesses.


Tony was the true surprise of the book for me. A top name in his sport, who is moving downhill. Fighting is his passion but not the way one would think. Tony’s TV and real life selves are two very different people who we see merge together to allow him to become who he truly is.


Below The Belt is an adrenaline pumping, sexy read. Sexual tension, attraction, and chemistry are blended perfectly! With lots of built hotties to picture as your reading. Tony is the true star of this book. His passion for life, love and family kept me turning the pages. Francesca and Tony keep you guessing! Their passion is as hot as the Miami sun.


Below The Belt is the third book of the Worth The Fight Series, however I had no issue reading it as a stand alone.


I received a copy of this book via netgalley for an honest review.
