Blog Tour, Excerpt & Review: MEDICINE MAN by Saffron A Kent


MEDICINE MAN by Saffron A. Kent

Release Date: September 27th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Amazon Universal:

Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.
It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.
Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.
No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.
Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.
The medicine man.
WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.


“Do you have someone special, Dr. Blackwood?”
Someone you kiss? Someone you grab and pull into a dark alley and press against
I don’t say that but I’m definitely asking that.
It’s like he hears the unspoken questions because the heat of his body seems to have
doubled. Like his blood is rushing in his veins with an uncanny speed.
With flaring nostrils and a hard jaw, he answers, “No.”
“Why not?”
“Because I’m busy.”
I want to smile. Actually, I’ve never wanted to smile this hard. Ever. His answer calms
me but it also makes me restless to move closer to him. I want to trace my palm over the arch
of his chest and see if I got it right in my dreams.
But I don’t do any of those things. I don’t want him to take away this small concession
he’s given me.
Why is he even giving it to me? I’m not complaining. But still.
“Busy with patients?”
“Busy with my job. Yes,” he says, all professional-like.
That’s what he is. Professional and distant. Dedicated to his job and fixing people. If
Mass General let him go, then they are idiots.
I’m an idiot, too, in this moment.
Instead of backing off, I want to do something. Something that might crack his cool
façade. Maybe reaching up and messing up his no-nonsense hair.
What would he do? If I did that? If I grabbed his collar and pushed him against the wall?
And kissed him?
My eyes drop to his lips, his soft, soft lips. There’s a cleft in the middle of his lower lip. I
want to taste that cleft, dig my tongue in it, wet it, suck on it, bite it.
“So you don’t have fun at all?”
“No. I’m not a fun guy.”
I watch his lips form the words, and every syllable that comes out of his mouth makes
my need to shake him, kiss him, mess him up, stronger. Stronger and stronger.

The need is so consuming that I hardly notice when he puts his hand on my palm and
takes it off his body. It’s final and smooth, his action. Effortless. As though my touch barely
registered to him.
“But I think you have a point. It’s after hours and I should go… have fun rather than
spending my time with a patient.” He steps back then. “I’ll see you next week. Same time.”


This is my favorite novel by Saffron A Kent to date! MEDICINE MAN has blown my book lovers mind! 😁🤯😍 It was a deliciously addictive forbidden romance like no other. And OH.EM.GEE, the slow burn and angst from their forbidden relationship was OFF THE CHARTS and had my heart racing and had me tingling all over! The encounters and stolen glances between Simon (Dr.Blackwood) and Willow left me breathless!🔥😏 They are perfect together!

Saffron's writing was FLAWLESS and captivating from the very beginning and as I said, UTTERLY ADDICTIVE! And this is one addiction I am NOT looking for a cure for 😏 I have stayed up WAY past my bedtime several nights and I endured withdrawals when I wasn't consuming this book. Simon and Willow were constantly on my mind! 

The characters were complex. Everything about them is intriguing. Willow is the perfect amount of quirky that makes her instantly lovable and Simon... Oh Simon, Simon, Simon. 👓👨‍⚕️He's EVERYTHING. He's distant and aloof, but always watching and protecting. He tries so hard to resist this pull to Willow, but it's futile. They're inevitable!😍

Even though this book deals with a sensitive subject matter (depression), one that shouldn't be taken lightly, Saffron executes it with such finesse, care, and passion that it was impossible to not love the turbulent story that was Simon and Willow. The Ice King and his Snow Princess. These characters were flawed and have MANY issues and internal battles to contend with, but they are stronger because of those flaws and they find the strength through each other to LIVE each day as a gift and to get back up when they fall. We are born fighters. You'll have good days and then you'll have bad days, but you're a warrior and you have the strength to overcome anything life throws at you. YOU are your own hero in your life story, BUT if a King comes along who is willing to help carry your burdens, it's ok to use his strength. IT'S OK to show your weaknesses bc you're only human and no one is perfect. 

If you want something different, something with depth, something with a deeper meaning...then this is the book for you! Trust me when I say u want to read this book. U WANT THIS BOOK!

Release Blitz & Review: BOOTED

BOOTED (Trails of Sin #3) is now LIVE!!!
Happy Release Day Pam Godwin

Genre → Contemporary Romance
Theme → Dark, brooding, kinky, lawless cowboys
Series → Each book is an HEA with no cliffhanger. Must be read in order.
The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.

We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.
Violent relief in a warm body.

Beneath her touch, I’m alive.
Against her skin, I’m redeemed.
Buried inside her, I forget the past.
Until the past takes her from me.

Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving.
I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.
I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.
"You're my whiskey." He takes my mouth, groaning into the kiss. "My addiction." His tongue traces mine. "My freedom."

The final installment to Pam Godwin's TRAILS OF SIN series if finally here! I have been waiting F.O.R.E.V.E.R. for Lorne's story. I was dying to know about the man he became after spending 8 years in prison for a crime he shouldn't of been punished so harshly for. A man can not be the same after that, and Lorne was no exception. Lorne had to deal with trying to fit back into the world again, HIS world again. The people and land he called home before prison, are now foreign to him. He is left feeling lost and separated from the land and family he loves. On top of that, there is the continued threat against his family in the background and now there's a new woman, Raina on the ranch, whom has a connection to the threat. She speaks to every male instinct within him. He hasn't been intimate with another woman in 8 years and Raina is one tempting package that he having a hard time resisting. But Lorne is unable to fulfill that lingering need because he's struggling to feel "normal" again, but once he discovers that Raina brings this sense of calm with her...a sense of peace for him, in the chaos that is his mind...that makes her even more alluring. And the fact that Raina is as much in danger, as his family, brings out his protective side. Lorne will do ANYTHING that it takes to protect his family and Raina, even if that means risking going back to prison. Some bonds are worth risking it all and his family is worth it. 
"I hear you." His bottomless, vibrant green eyes swirl with startling depth. "Every unspoken thought. Every emotion you cover up." His expression softens. "I hear YOU."
Lorne and Raina's story was my favorite of all the books. Their connection is instant and unbridled. It was beautiful to read about how their love for each other grew throughout the book and their unspoken language was adorable. #IHearYou Once they let their walls down, they realized they were each others healing balms to their pasts. Also, I'm SO happy that we got more details about the other couples in the series (Jake & Conor and Jarret & Maybe)...the bond all these characters have was unbreakable and unconditional.

This was a turbulent, dark, emotional, and raw story that had some sweet and tender moments in there that smoothed out all the pain these characters had to endure. Lorne and Raina's story is NOT as easy one and took me on a suspenseful ride. Raina's past especially is hard to stomach and left me hurting for her. BOOTED tied up this series perfectly and left no loose ends. I was very happy with how everything ended. Pam Godwin proved again that I can trust her to deliver a story with compelling writing that keeps me interested from beginning to end. 

"The universe is speaking." I marvel out loud.   
"Are you listening?"
I nod my head against his.

**Be warned, this book may contain triggers for some readers. It is a Dark Romance after all.

5 stars

Buckled #2:

I try to forget her.
It’s impossible

First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.

We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.

Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.

I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
She’s mine.

I protect what’s mine.
The ranch, my family, our buried secrets.

Nothing will stop me from reassembling the life that went terribly wrong.
Not the law.
Not our enemies.
Not even Maybe Quinn.

The gorgeous, quarrelsome journalist shouldn’t have meddled.
I shouldn’t have let her stay.
But she’s hiding something in those deceptive blue eyes.
Something deeper than her thirst for a news story.

I make a deal with her to buy time.
To unravel her lies. To play with her. To satisfy my darker appetites.
When she buckles beneath my belt, I’ll send her away.
Unless I buckle first.
