It’s spring break, and a group of teachers from Half Moon Bay Middle School are planning to cut loose. History teacher Meg Phillips hadn’t planned on being one of them—Vegas isn’t really a town for a bookworm—but somehow she let her friend Anne talk her into it.

Though honestly, she’d rather indulge in some poolside reading than co-star in an R-rated edition of Teachers Gone Wild.

It took some major arm twisting for Finn Walsh to convince his fellow gym teacher, Anne, to do whatever it took to get Meg to Vegas. For over a year he’s been looking for the chance to get to know her outside of work. He’s drawn to her quiet beauty and intelligence—and the hint of fire beneath her understated exterior.

When he finally gets the opportunity to peel away those layers, the result is far more explosive than he ever fantasized. Now to convince her that the week isn’t a wildly out-of-character mistake, but the start of something amazing…

Crystal’s summer secret: My favorite part of summer is cooking out on the BBQ. Grilled steak and potatoes along with some ice cold watermelon. Yum.

DELILAH DEVLIN

Once in a Blue Moon

When testing an enemy for weaknesses, prepare for things to get hard.

Bryn Cavanaugh and her coven like that the community they live in is isolated thanks to a storm that destroyed the bridge between them and the outside world. Now the state wants the bridge rebuilt. When the construction crew checks into the inn, Bryn begins to suspect something about the crew’s boss isn’t quite…human.
Bridges are Ethan Thorne’s thing—after all, he’s a troll—so building a simple span over a remote canal in backwater Louisiana shouldn’t be this much of a problem. When he follows the pretty little innkeeper to a midnight rendezvous, he discovers why his crew keeps running in to trouble. Bryn and her coven are casting spells in the moonlight.
As a troll, Ethan feels the sting of his low place in demon hierarchy. But finding an unprotected coven of witches in the middle of the bayou could lead to all sorts of adventure. And it’s better to keep your enemies close…
Warning: Contains a handsome troll (Hey, it can happen!) who’s skilled at building sexual tension with his hands—and several other body parts, as well—and a witch who’s determined to protect her home, but forgets to shield her heart.

ELENA AITKEN

When Kylie Wilson receives a mysterious invitation for an all expenses paid trip to a tropical, all inclusive resort, there’s no doubt in her mind who it came from—Marcus Stone, the only man she’s ever really loved. The same man who’d promised her forever and then promptly left town to pursue his dream without so much as a backward glance. Kylie owes it to herself to take a chance, and despite her conflicted feelings, she decides to risk her heart again and is soon jetting toward the island of Eden and the man she hopes will finally fill the void in her life. But when she arrives, all is not as she expected it to be. More to the point, he is not who she expected him to be. And on an island that is supposed to ‘know exactly what you need’, can Kylie open body, mind and more importantly—her heart to someone and something, she’s never considered?

Elena’s summer message: Finally, it’s summer! If you need me I’ll be sitting by the lake with a hot book and a cold drink!

PG FORTE

http://pgforte.com/LALL.jpg

An aspiring actress, an amnesiac heiress, a tarnished movie star…and the men who love them. Love like this could only happen in LA.

Waiting for the Big One: One girl, two guys and a quest for ultimate satisfaction.

Aspiring actress Gabby Brown refuses to consider her best friend, and personal trainer, Derek Novello for the role of soul mate fearing sex will ruin their beautiful friendship. When she meets Zach, she’s convinced that he could be The One. Too bad Derek isn’t willing to share—leaving Gabby forced to choose between two sexy co-stars.

An early morning earthquake provides Gabby with the impetus she needs to stop waiting for the stars to align and finally cast her leading man.

Love, from A to Z: When April’s memory goes missing, not all her millions can buy it back.

Zach Harris was sure the girl he’d picked up in the bar last night said her name was Angel. Too bad she didn’t tell him anything more about herself, because this morning, she can’t remember anything—not even her name!

What poor-little-rich-girl April Valenzuela views as a problem, however, Zach sees as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; a chance for her to discover who she really is. Not her name or her address, but the important stuff. Her personality. Her likes and dislikes. Her preferences—in and out of bed.

Let Me Count the Ways: She’s thinking fling, he’s thinking forever.

Sexy former film star Claire Calhoun is used to having her pick of studly young men. Now that she and Derek have called it quits, however, the actress-turned-entrepreneur is feeling vulnerable. After one mojito too many at a party one night, she decides it would be fun to try something new—in this case, Mike Sherman, her staid accountant and long-time fan.

Claire has been Mike’s fantasy since the first time he saw her bare it all for the camera. Now that she’s in his bed he’ll do whatever’s necessary to keep her there. But he’s not a stalker, right? He’s just a devoted fan.

PG’s message: Hey everybody! Hope you’re all having a sizzling summer of love. And thanks to the Smutketeers for hosting such a fabulous party! I spent my summer vacation in Bali this year where I was introduced to the joy of fresh ginger tea. Just add a couple of slices of fresh ginger to a cup of boiling water and let steep for a couple of minutes, then sweeten to taste. It doesn’t seem to make sense–drinking hot, spicy tea to cool down–but it sure seems to work!

PG’s giveaway: a digital copy of each of the three books that make up the trilogy. 

AVA CONWAY aka SUZANNE ROCK

http://suzannerock.com/AvaConway/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/HOLLOW-193x300.jpg

Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Disaster in this thrilling and sexy debut novel, in which a college student learns her perfect life is a lie and finds new love where she least expects it—a mental institution.
Freaks, misfits and psychopaths. Those are the kinds of people found at Newton Heights Psychiatric Hospital, and high-society girl Lucy White’s new home.

Freaks, misfits and Jayden McCray. Jayden has his own set of rules for life at Newton Heights, and in this contradictory guy Lucy finds a way to live with the events that left her cheating boyfriend and best friend dead and Lucy in the middle of the investigation into their demise.

The problem? Jayden makes her want things she’s not supposed to have, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality and making Lucy feel more at home in Newton Heights than she ever did at home. But this isn’t how her life is supposed to be.

Or is it?

Note: Hollow releases August 11th, but you can preorder it now. Normally $4.99, it is now only $1.99…but the sale will only last until the end of the summer. Get it while it’s cheap! :)

Suzanne’s summer message: I love to read, but often find myself too busy to indulge. I believe that slowing down to do things you enjoy is so important, and often overlooked in our society. With this in mind, I’m challenging myself to read more this summer. I know that I can find a few minutes in my day here and there to read. While waiting for the kids, in between appointments, etc. There is always time if you are passionate about something. I need to rediscover my pasion for reading and indulge in some good books.
 
How about you? Do you read every day? I’m challenging myself to read one book a week. That’s only 10 books this summer. Small challenge for some, but a large one for me. Who’s with me?

MARI CARR

Two’s Company. Three is perfection.
Second Chances, book 5
Shelly MacIsaac has pretty much given up all hope. Hope that she’ll lose weight, that she’ll find any excitement in life, that there will ever be any man in her bed besides Barney, her cat.
When her friend Zoey suggests the wine girls come up with resolutions for the New Year, Shelly latches onto the one everyone expects her to choose—the tried-and-true commitment to go on a diet and get into shape. Deep inside, however, Shelly knows she needs to change a lot more than just her physical appearance.
After a year licking his wounds over a broken romance, Christian is through. He’s been quietly lusting after Shelly at work, and he’s not wasting any more time. There’s something about her that makes him believe she’s the one. Unfortunately, Shelly’s kickboxing instructor, Lance—Christian’s best friend—has set his sights on the sweet blonde as well.
Instead of pistols at dawn, the two friends come up with a deliciously erotic answer to their shared dilemma—if the shy beauty will accept their racy proposal.
Warning: There is a chance this story will encourage you to go on a diet and begin an intense exercise regime. After all, flavored body lube is low cal, right? And sex is a great way to burn calories.

“You have to go. I won’t be able to control myself. I’ve wanted you so bad for so long and after I’ve been in the cage…I can’t think straight.” He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him. He takes over. His kiss is hard and demanding.

“Mine.” His voice is raw, savage and for a moment I truly believe he may lose control.

He rules in the ring

Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn’t dull the pain of Amanda’s rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn’t found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help…

But can he rule her heart?

Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda’s not sure if she can stay in control, or if she’s finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.

After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible. Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become – or risk losing her for good.
A woman who needs to run her own life. A man who needs to exert control. Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

Carly’s summer message: Happy Summer! I hope you will take a chance on Dare to Surrender. Gabe and Isabelle are my hottest couple yet and add in the island of Eden where anything can happen? Well, it’s a hot summer read.

 ANN MAYBURN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before I met Smoke I’d never been kissed, really kissed, by a man, let alone a biker sex god bent on taking my virginity and my heart.

I got dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by my crazy twin sister who is engaged to the club’s President and even crazier mom who only cares about herself. Smoke has been assigned by the club to keep me safe even though he’s everything that I should be afraid of. He’s the kind of man who lives by his own rules and does whatever he wants whenever he wants, but he treats me like I’m something rare and precious, not a socially dysfunctional basket case who has no idea how to love, but needs him more than her next breath.

Not that my feelings matter, because if we don’t find my mother soon, the only thing I’ll have to be worried about is who is going to kill me first.

 

Ann’s summer message: Nothing says summer like riding around on the back of motorcycle with the sun on your face and your arms wrapped tight around a devastatingly handsome biker like Smoke from ‘Exquisite Trouble’. I hope your sultry summer nights are filled with the kind of men (and maybe women-no judgement here) that will keep you up until the early hours of the morning with a smile on your face and satisfaction in your heart. If you need someone to spend those nights with, Smoke from ‘Exquisite Trouble’ would be more than happy to take care of you.

From the bestselling author of HERE, HOME, HOPE, comes a novel of suspense and choices, with a nod to the best of Susan Isaacs’s tales of suburban murder.

Everything isn’t what it seems in the wonderful suburb of Grandville. ALL THE DIFFERENCE is the story of three women whose lives become entangled by the choices they make and how, ultimately, one of them turns to murder to achieve her goals.

Roommates Laura and Angie couldn’t be more different. Laura is a local celebrity, the television anchor who is motivated to move out of small-time media markets and on to the big time, no matter the cost. Meanwhile, Angie, a luckless waitress, spends her time waiting for Mr. Right to save her from temporary jobs and a life spent making bad choices.

On the other side of town, Ellen abandons her life as a successful fundraiser for that of an isolated housewife in the country estate she shares with her husband, whose affairs become increasingly hard to ignore. When the city’s gossip columnist, Maddie, and restaurant reviewer, Dixon, become involved in the mystery, the unlikely duo stir up more than they intended. But will anyone be able to stop the next murder?

Wooing a life mate can be hard enough for a wolf, wooing one while under the threat of a curse even more so.
Wooing a mate while pretending to be her dog? Nearly impossible.

After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken’s doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds “Fluffy” vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed, Max’s human side gets to know JC. Especially in the biblical sense.

Hopefully well enough to make her fall madly in love, mate with him under the full moon, and move with him to Cedar Glen to live happily every after forever and ever amen. And fast.

Because the curse comes with a deadline…and the clock is ticking.

Dakota’s summer message: So it’s summer. Beaches, sand, sun, exotic cocktails–YAY! While you allow scantily clad, well-oiled men the right to fan you and pop endless juicy grape after endless juicy grape into your mouth, I hope you can squeeze in a good read. And if by chance you’re too busy reading and you have scantily clad, well-oiled men at your house you’re too overwhelmed to oversee, call me, maybe? I can help! Happy summer, all!

Catrina Carter is in over her head. Way over her head. She’s in debt and, short of bankruptcy, which wouldn’t happen fast enough to pay the creditors nipping at her heels, Catrina has few choices. Eviction is coming any day, and even though she traded in her great car for a “more affordable” model, it’s about to be repossessed too. Catrina goes to Debt Management Associates, or DMA, for help.

The cost for DMA’s help is something she never thought she could pay, but out of options, Catrina agrees to serve a man who pays her debt in full, and begins training in how to please him. Jared. Her new benefactor. He is tasked with helping Catrina get her life back on track, in addition to taking his pleasure with her and ordering her to oblige friends, colleagues, and even total strangers sexually on his whim.

When Catrina leaves the DMA program after her one year term of service, will she be able to keep the lessons Jared literally spanked into her topmost in her mind, or will old habits rear their designer heads?

Naughty Little Secret by Shayla Black (writing as Shelley Bradley)

Blurb:  After divorcing her never-home husband, Lauren Southall plucked up her courage, dusted off her power suits, and returned to corporate life. Two years later, there’s just one six-foot three, testosterone-packed problem: her ex-husband’s good friend and her current boss, Noah Reeves. Lauren aches for him. But she can’t possibly measure up to the silicone-packed professional cheerleaders he dates. So she hides her desire behind a professional persona and fantasizes.

For ten years, Noah Reeves has waited to make Lauren his. Once her divorce was final, he tracked down and hired the brilliant, dedicated woman. But when he’s with her, it isn’t spreadsheets and profit margins on his brain. Problem is, she’s never seen him as anything but her ex-husband’s pal. Now that she’s finally a free woman and with him 40+ hours a week, well… he’d love to persuade her to throw in her nights and weekends. So Noah decides to romance her by day. By night, he becomes a mysterious stranger devoted only to her pleasure…and discovers she’s hiding a naughty little secret of her own.

Sometimes the darkest nights produce the brightest stars.

Rule of Three, Book 3

When the pregnancy test turns positive, Kassidy, Dag and Chris are thrilled they’re going to be parents at last. Their polyamorous relationship has blossomed, and there’s more than enough love to go around for their long-awaited little “Belly Bean”.

Then reality sets in. Dag grew up without a father. Does that mean he’s too damaged to be a good role model? Kassidy is at a critical point in her career, working long hours on a high-profile project. And Chris gets a disappointing—but not exactly unexpected—reaction when he contacts his parents with the news.

As worry nibbles at the edges of their happiness, fate is poised to tear it to shreds, leaving a loving foundation three years in the making cracking under the weight of grief and guilt. And the trio in the fight of their lives to repair their unconventional bonds.
Product Warnings

Kelly’s message: Well, I’d like to say summer is my favorite time for reading, but that’s not true because I read ALL the time. So I’ve never really gotten that whole “beach read” concept. Yes, I love reading on the beach, or by the pool…or on my deck, or on my couch in front of the fireplace or in the bathtub or in bed…pretty much anywhere!

Book two of the Pleasure Code series.

After the loss of her Dom and first love two years ago, the time has come for Kyla to again allow herself the pleasure of giving up control. She isn’t looking for anything serious yet, just the comforting embrace of rope and a firm hand on her body for the night.

Rope-top Sawyer is extremely skilled and he doesn’t do relationships—but he’s fascinated by the gymnastics instructor who approaches him at a kink con. By the end of the day he’s vowed to help her feel submissive pleasure again, and to introduce her to a few Doms she can choose from.

But as Sawyer breaks down Kyla’s emotional defenses, his barriers also come down. Soon he can’t imagine giving Kyla over to any other Dom—and Kyla can’t imagine being with anyone else. When their feelings are put to the ultimate test, they’ll learn that while taking risks in the bedroom is easy, taking risks in love is terrifying.

Gillian’s message: I just discovered a great summertime activity. Ice blocking!

What you need:

1-2 blocks of ice per person

1 hand towel

1 grassy hill

What you do:

Climb to the top of a hill. Place the towel over the block of ice. Sit down on the covered ice block and let physics do the work for you. It’s like sledding but in summer. We found success in placing two blocks of ice side by side and sliding down on both. Warning: Mixing alcohol & ice blocking is NOT recommended. Hilarity might ensue but so will ‘grass rash’ or something worse!

Gillian’s giveaway: Since Up In Knots is book two of my Pleasure Code series, I’ll be giving away a copy of book one, Wicked Weekend!

All the military training in the world won’t help him knock down her walls.

Years ago a terrifying attack left Kenzie McLaughlin trusting only a few men in her insular life on Whidbey Island—her brothers and her father. But when a sexy Navy guy who waltzes into the family pub doesn’t hesitate to makes his interest known, no amount of mental red flags are enough to keep her from being tempted to dip a toe back into the dating pool.

Twice burned in the past, Brett Craven has sworn off serious relationships, at least while he’s still in the Navy. A gorgeous redhead with a fiery wit and wariness of men, though, has blown his well-reasoned strategy out of the water.

There’s no denying the attraction between the two, but Kenzie teeters on a tightrope anchored on one end by hope, the other by caution.

Because if she lets her guard down long enough to fall for Brett, it could leave her vulnerable to the one man who’s been left free to prey upon her fear.

Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the
media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before
breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class
reunion.

Then he meets the new girl in town.

Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the
perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only
plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free
life.

Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.

Mason sure doesn’t look—or kiss—like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he
makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion
like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House
should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.

Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.

*And look for the other books in the series. Getting Worked Up and Getting Dirty!

Erin’s message: One of my favorite summer memories was the week of the big annual festival
in the little town where my grandparents lived when I was kid. The
festival meant rides and cotton candy and bright lights and staying out
late. I loved everything about it. We now live in a town where the annual
county fair is held and I still love every bit of it. It wouldn’t be
summer without a Ferris wheel in my opinion!

So when I decided to write a small town summer series, I automatically
included a town festival. That’s just *summer* to me! And the festival in
Sapphire Falls has it all– rides, dunk tank, kissing booth, funnel cakes,
petting zoo… the whole nine yards!

So you’re cordially invited to join us in Sapphire Falls for lots of
summer fun! Though, I will say, this festival gets even hotter than most
I’ve been to :)

And Paddy is the kind of trouble that Natalie has a taste for.

Even after years of the rock-and-roll lifestyle, Paddy never forgot the two wickedly hot weeks he once shared with Natalie.

Book 1 in the NA rock star series, Lost in Oblivion
Love definitely wasn’t on the setlist.
Opening for their idols on their first tour, Oblivion is living the dream. Mostly. Frustrated at being shoved out of his mediator role by their new manager, Deacon McCoy loses himself in brutal workouts. He only comes up for air long enough to refuel–and to tease the deliciously cute chef who makes him crave a lot more than what she’s offering on her serving plate.
As the child of roadie parents, Harper Pruitt has heard every pickup line twice. To her, musicians are one step above the scraps on her cutting board. All she wants is to get enough experience to run her own catering company, but Deacon and his bottomless stomach are too tempting to resist. He’s far from the typical rock star and before long, she finds herself experimenting with him, inside and out of the kitchen.
Apron – and panties – optional.
When Harper sees that Deacon’s dream band with his best friends may be turning into a nightmare, she can’t walk away. Deacon’s so much more than just a peacemaker and the man behind the bass. But she has her own dreams to chase…even if she’s starting to think what she’s building with him might be the biggest one of all.
You met Deacon McCoy in SEDUCED, now you can watch just how far a big man can fall.

After she infiltrated his business and betrayed his trust, a disavowed CIA agent must seek sanctuary in the bedroom of a man who will either help her, kill her, or bring her to her knees…
Becca Ford is on her own. Eight months after she headed up a sting operation to take down millionaire club owner Jarrett Holt, the other agents in her special ops team have been eliminated under odd circumstances, and she needs a place to hide.

Jarrett is a man who prefers darkness to light. He deals in the only truly valuable currency—information—and his supper club caters to an exclusive clientele. It was an uncharacteristic moment of weakness when he let a woman into his life. But it’s not luck that the criminal charges disappeared . . . as did the evidence.

When Becca returns to the club seeking his help, Jarrett doesn’t want to hear her story. But he does want her body, and demands that she give it to him. He’ll keep her safe—for now—but it’ll be in his bed and on his terms, until he says they’re done.

You can’t keep a bad girl down…at least not without restraints.

Wild Crush, Book 2

After an affair with a Dom turns sour, Jasmine Campbell returns to Leyton’s Headland to build up some good karma by keeping her sister’s business afloat. For that, she needs help from real estate developer Aaron Sanderson—an old school mate who’s grown up movie-star handsome.

When Jasmine knocks on his office door, Aaron can barely contain his triumph. In high school he had an unrequited crush on Jasmine, but ten years on he’s better at close encounters with the opposite sex. He thinks he knows just how to handle Jasmine—with an aloof demeanor and a firm hand.

Little does he know just how firm a hand Jasmine needs.

Jasmine figures a fun vanilla fling will cleanse her sexual palate. Yet her lover proves himself surprisingly adept at satisfying her submissive desires. And soon she’s in serious danger of doing the one thing she swore never to do: fall in love.

Warning: Contains casual sex, intimate sex, slow sex, fast sex, rough sex, roleplay sex and spanking. So basically, lots of sex and spanking.

Sami’s message: What do I love about Summer? Margaritas! LOL. Actually that’s totally true, but it’s not just the poolside drinks, it’s the time spent with family, the sweet relief of diving into the pool after a long hot day, the aroma of sunscreen and sand, and the short amount of time it takes to get dressed in the morning. I love to write summer-themed books, too. I hope you check out my latest from Samhain Publishing, it’s called Irrepressible Jasmine and it’s book 2 in the Wild Crush series that’s all about surfing, summer and coming home.

Tastes of Seduction, Book 1

Angus Lowe feels like he’s just stepped onto the set of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. He’s checking out a luxurious boutique hotel and winery, lured by the possibility of landscaping the gardens. And he’s crazy mad about the woman giving him the tour.

Problem is, Lily Hemington is way out of his league. Not only does she live the lifestyle of the rich and famous, she is also crazy mad about the owner of the hotel, Blake Seymour.

Issues get cloudier—or could that be steamier?—when Angus meets Blake. It’s clear Blake has deep feelings for Lily, but it’s also obvious he can’t take his eyes off Angus. While Angus doesn’t find this at all unpleasant, he’s painfully aware Lily and Blake are perfect for each other, and that he doesn’t belong in their perfect world.

Now it’s up to Lily and Blake to convince Angus the only world that counts is the one they all create together.

Warning: This book should be enjoyed with a bottle of chilled white wine. You’ll need it to cool down when the heat among these three characters burns out of control.

Which drives Jaxon Campbell, keyboardist and perpetual player, to do something dangerous—hit up a woman with contacts—and curves—in all the right places. Trouble is, the last time he saw her, he kind of broke her heart. And stole her cherished, autographed AC/DC album.

Natalie Thorton, Dean of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, knows everyone who’s anyone in Australia’s music industry. She’s driven and utterly professional and doesn’t have room in her schedule for relationships.

When Jaxon strides into her office, all of Natalie’s suppressed sexual urges—the ones born in Jax’s arms—surge to the surface. He wants something from her? Well, she wants something from him. Orgasms. Lots of them.

How can Jax say no? He’s never forgotten her, and it’s not like they’re going to fall in love. But just who’s playing who? And whose heart is going to fall first?

Warning: Contains a sexual challenge involving sex in public places, sex in private places, sex in moving cars, sex against windows and sex in the company of an oblivious federal politician. So basically, we’re talking about getting laid. A lot.

Cassandra Moreland’s hard work to build her party-planning business is starting to pay off. There’s only one thorn in her side – a six-foot-five wall of testosterone throwing his weight around while she supervises her friend Lil’s first party. Butting heads doesn’t work. Ignoring him really doesn’t work. Not when he makes her pulse race and her palms sweat. But no way will she give in to his demand to shut the rowdy party down.

Lucas Wilhelm, head of McDermott Security, can’t believe the pint-sized brunette has the balls to go toe-to-toe with him. Strangely enough, that sassy mouth of hers isn’t ticking him off. It’s tightening his groin and stirring something much hotter than anger.

A stolen moment in a pantry leads to a challenge that pushes each other’s sexual boundaries to the limit. Except the rules go up in flames when they realise they’re not just playing around. They’re playing for keeps.

Warning: Contains an alpha male who’s used to being in charge, and a tough-as-steel woman who isn’t going down easy. Involves the use of beads, but not in the way you might think.

Rhian’s message: I’d like to be an adult about this and tell you to get out there in the sun and have a good time but you know what? I’m not gonna.

Bad Idea: Some mistakes are worth making.

Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling super-square, straitlaced superheroes, hiding from his fans, and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams. Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnership.

Against their better judgment, they fall victim to chemistry, and what starts as infatuation quickly grows tender and terrifying. With Silas’s help, Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan: sketching out Scratch, a “very graphic novel” that will either make his name or wreck his career. But even a smash can’t save their world if Trip retreats into his mild-mannered rut, leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can’t escape.

What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it safe?

Damon’s message: Hope y’all are having a groovy Smutketeer summer, reading hard and living slick.

When power play becomes more than just a game…

BDSM. Submission. Spanking…These are the things Skye has always craved, the desires she has never allowed herself to explore. Until now. She thought she was looking for a single experience, something to purge these strange yearnings from her system. Instead she finds a man whose absolute authority and stunning good looks leave her breathless, willing to do anything he asks of her. But only for one night…

Adam has other ideas. Skye could be the perfect submissive once he’s done training her—for someone else. For him, that’s always the way it’s been. But Skye is different. Enticing. Intoxicating. Irresistible. Soon all he can think of is breaking Skye—and keeping her for himself.

DangerouslyInked-Final-NYT-200x300When the submissive he played on New Year’s Eve turns out to be his tempting tattoo artist…Finn knows Rosie may soon have him on his knees.

Aussie Dom and ultimate ‘player’ Finn Carter is in New Orleans to spend New Year’s Eve with his friend Mick at The Bastille, the city’s infamous BDSM club. A night of play with a beautiful sub leaves him wanting more…more than he’s ever imagined with any other woman. When the tattoo artist he has an appointment with turns out to be her more than his flesh may be marked forever.

Roisin ‘Rosie’ Gallagher’s past and working as a tattoo artist has taught her to be tough. Even in her scenes as a submissive she’s strong, always fighting to give herself over. Tattooing Finn may give her a thrill at being the one in command now, but as they explore the kink dynamic in private the control ceases to matter, and all that’s left is pure pleasure…and the possibility of something that could last as long as the ink on his skin.

What’s better than one hot alien at your service? Two hot aliens in your bed.

After four months of orbiting Earth in a spaceship bursting with sex-starved aliens, nurse Shelley Bonham will do just about anything to get off. The ship, that is.
Not that the aliens aren’t hot enough to put her hormones on red alert. In fact, the more time she spends with the Garathani leader Cecine and his personal guard Hastion, the more she wants them. Knowing what Cecine and Hastion are doing to each other when nobody’s looking only makes it harder to keep her hands to herself.
But she’s already been betrayed by one alien–her dead douchebag of a husband. Can she trust her future–and her children–to another?

Warning: Contains the usual Robin L. Rotham smorgasbord of m/m/f menage and D/s elements, plus a shipload of alien alphas in outer space.

Book 3 in the Aliens Overnight series.

Purgatory Club Book 6 – While each Purgatory Club novella stands alone, you’ll likely enjoy reading the earlier Purgatory Club books, too.

Sometimes you need to cut and run and sometimes the ties run too deep to abandon.

Bonnie’s job at Purgatory keeps her on edge in more ways than one. Every day the pain of her grief over losing her Dom threatens to consume her. Her only escape comes at the hands of the resident tattooed  bad boy who likes to keep things light and loose with a variety of women. He may not be the Dom of her dreams, but he chases away the darkness if only for one night…

Dex is used to unattached submissives coming to him for a chance to feel the kiss of his flogger or the sting of his whip until they find their own Doms. With his busy life of ink and kink he likes keeping his women at arm’s length. Except one night a month when Bonnie shreds him every time she asks him to hold her close.

When a secret invitation to an island resort arrives, is it the answer to their problems? Or their worst nightmare?

Breaking Free

Spring Break at college is supposed to be a time of fun and parties, but Alaska Rossi, AKA Janey Smith, is on lockdown thanks to her father’s mafia dealings. She wants only to party down with the rest of her classmates. At least her hot, darkly mysterious bodyguard—deep undercover as her dorm’s resident assistant—gives her something to fantasize about during her boring nights in confinement.

When Alaska wins a campus radio contest, and is gifted with a special invitation to an exclusive island, she knows it’s her chance to break free. After all, Eden is a place where no one knows her name, so what danger could possibly come to her? But when danger appears in the form of a masked man who takes control of all her pleasures, tapping into her darkest fantasies, she begins to wonder if her undercover lover, and the mysterious bodyguard who’s deep undercover, are one in the same…

Evan McQueen had his entire life planned out. Poised to potentially take over a multi-billion dollar corporation, this trip to the island resort of Eden is Evan’s last chance to make a good impression on the billionaire CEO. He thought he knew where his life was going, was so certain of what he wanted…until a blonde vision stomping across the hotel lobby wearing motocross boots shattered all his preconceived notions. Dani Knight is a woman who isn’t afraid to defy convention, and unlike anyone Evan has ever met. The island’s tour guide and a world motorcycle traveller, she immediately fascinates Evan, and he can’t get enough of her.

Serving temporarily as the island’s tour guide and resident mechanic, Dani has seen countless guests come and go from Eden. She should be focusing on her upcoming ‘round-the-world journey and the day to day life of the island, not the man who sets her heart on fire. As much as she knows it’s temporary – they both have their own lives to lead – Dani can’t get Evan out of her head…or her heart. The more he reveals, the more she sees a kindred spirit in need of guidance, but she can’t make his decisions for him. She’s seen the island work miracles before, but can it bring together two souls going down vastly different paths?

Set within the lush Invitation To Eden universe.

TOO MUCH with Lea Griffith!
by edenbradley on Jun 10th, 2014 13 Comments »

Welcome our friend Lea Griffith and her debut book with Loveswept! Do you love a great contemporary romance? Do you love one with some HOT kink? Of course you do!!! Which means, you’re gonna love Lea’s latest release, TOO MUCH! Let’s take a peek…

In Lea Griffith’s Loveswept debut, a novel that’s perfect for erotic romance readers, two lovers who have shared exquisite pain and unforgettable bliss find solace back in each other’s arms.
 
Jeremiah Copeland and Daly Edwards have a history. Even though he grew up a criminal struggling to care for two younger siblings, and she’s the pampered daughter of a power-hungry senator, they formed a bond that nothing could break. Only a lack of trust ripped them apart.
 
Seven years later, Daly has reason to believe that Jeremiah’s brother is in trouble. She reaches out to Jeremiah the only way she knows how: at his BDSM club, The Underground. But one look ignites a heat she thought had cooled forever. As Jeremiah takes control of her body once again, Daly quickly loses control of her carefully rebuilt world. Too much has never been enough between them, and as danger swirls in the shadows, Jeremiah forces Daly to recognize what has never changed: She still loves him. His command is that she return her heart—and he will make her obey.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

The song’s beat was hard and heavy, and like the darkened club, it made her vibrate with need. So many things she’d tried to forget, yet every pulse of the music pushing through the big black speakers above her had Daly’s heart squeezing and thumping, slow and deliberate. It was incredibly erotic how her blood moved in time with the music, tripping along with the notes and breaking like waves in her veins. Heat settled in her stomach, drifted lower, and she squeezed her thighs together. She would have fallen had she not been leaning on a chair. Every shift on her stiletto heels brought a mild panic that only served to increase her need.

Forms moved sinuously on the dance floor, touching and pulling apart, melding and spinning away. Her gaze took it all in—the flashing strobe lights and the dim corners, the bodies writhing all about. Muscles rippled, hips flexed, and heads were thrown back in either ecstasy or pain. Maybe one heightening the other until it was a combination of the two.

It was Friday night and The Underground was loud and raucous, much more so than she’d imagined. The members-only exclusive dungeon was a haven for those seeking pleasures of the extreme variety. Bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, and kink of all varieties were served up under the watchful eyes of the dungeon monitors situated throughout the establishment. Jeremiah Copeland had created a sanctuary for people who enjoyed their sex with a side of spice. People just like him.

Daly shivered, felt the sensation echo in her soul, and wondered if the last three years had changed him.

Her gaze touched on the gorgeous layout of the BDSM club. Everything about it reflected the dark desires of the man who owned it. There was a long, wooden bar along almost the entire length of the left wall, and several leather couches sat in clusters throughout the main room. There was also a large dance floor made of the same deeply golden wood as the bar; strobe lights from the ceiling ricocheted off its shine. Intricate iron sconces were placed at precise intervals along the walls and two life-sized iron birdcages hung from the vaulted ceilings, each holding a single woman dressed in a burgundy corset, fishnet stockings, and nothing else. They danced erotically with the intent to seduce.

Daly cleared her throat. She’d never stepped foot in this club before tonight, and still, memories taunted her. She had loved dancing with him, the man she was here to see. The feel of his hands on her waist, the shift of his body against hers. His breath in her ear, the taste of him on her tongue.

She drew in a rough breath and forced herself to concentrate. Three years was a long time to be apart. Surely time enough for her to have gotten over this kind of visceral reaction, yet fear of that very thing had been agonizing her this entire week.

The only sounds that could be heard above the music were those of leather floggers meeting flesh, the snap of whips, the jingle of chains, and pleas for release. It was harsh but enticing at the same time.

“You’ve been standing there for twenty minutes.”

The voice made her straighten her spine and its dangerous tone had Daly clenching her fists. But the man behind her, while important, wasn’t the man she’d come here to see.

“I’ll stand here for twenty, a hundred, a thousand more if need be,” she warned.

“I’m sure every man here would appreciate that. But he won’t.”

She turned her head at that, encountering a familiar brown gaze but barely recognizing the man she’d grown up idolizing.

“What happened to your face, Toby?”

He shrugged. “Got cut, Daly.”

She snorted and turned back to watch the dance floor. The beat changed to something even slower and more intense, calling to the wildness that prowled under her skin.

Daly heard Toby’s sigh and wanted to smile. He was her brother; at one time he’d been her best friend. Now he was a stranger with a scarred face and no patience. It was heartening somehow to know Toby’s tolerance hadn’t changed.

She glanced around, searching for him. Was he even here? What the hell would she do if he was involved in play with a submissive? She hadn’t thought this through very well.

Her gaze snagged on a couple in the farthest corner. They were playing, and their scene stopped Daly’s breath. The woman stood bound with black rope to a wooden Saint Andrew’s cross. The thought of being bound was enough to titillate some, but the act itself, giving over complete control to a Dom, letting him bind her body and will with his rope, had been Daly’s undoing in the past.

For just a moment it was Daly’s small frame crisscrossed by the ropes and highlighted by the large X at her back. It was her long, brown hair peeking from under the bloodred hood. It was her pale, slender back wearing the marks from her Dom’s flogger. It was her hoarse pleas floating on the air.

The picture superimposed on reality then disintegrated. The Dom and his submissive were not her and Jeremiah. No matter how much in that moment she wished they were.

The woman hissed and yelped as her Dom’s flogger flicked a nipple. He was a giant compared to the fragile female, yet her screams were of ecstasy. Her Dom was caring for her needs even as he took care of his own. The beauty of the scene made Daly’s eyes water.

She shook her head. “Where is he?”

Her voice wavered and she wanted to curse. Coming here was a bad idea; she knew this. But he wouldn’t return her calls and she had no idea where he lived now. She did know he was a successful shipping magnate and owned several properties in and around Atlanta, one of them being this entire building that housed The Underground.

Her meager research told her nothing more than he was rich and still liked his kink. A part of her understood but didn’t like knowing he frequented his club. It hurt.

Like so many hurts in her life, she pushed it aside.

Toby grunted. “Here.”

“No shit, Sherlock,” she bit out. Toby grunted again and she rolled her eyes. “So how about you take me to your boss?”

He didn’t answer, but his gaze sliced to her. She raised her chin and met his glare. After long moments of trying to intimidate her, he grinned, and Daly wanted to weep. His beautiful face was bisected now by a long diagonal scar that ran the length of his left cheek from hairline to chin. It was a testament to the bad shit that often happened around Toby and his boss. She’d heard through the grapevine that that had changed. For her brother’s sake, she hoped it was true.

The right side of Toby’s face remained unmarked and as gorgeous as ever. In that split second, she mourned the loss of their innocence. Toby had been her port in every storm when she was younger. When Daly left his boss, Toby broke off contact with her. That still stung.

She shoved her memories away and looked him in the eye. “We gonna stand here all night?”

“Grew a set, did ya?” He looked her up and down and finally let out a deep breath. “I can’t. He doesn’t want you near him.”

Oh, the hurt was vicious. It prickled the skin over her heart and sank deep into the organ Jeremiah once owned. The pain spread like poison, and she bit her lip trying to hold back a scream as the old wounds reopened. Toby watched it all, and she knew the shadow in his eyes was pity.

That pity was why she lifted her chin higher and narrowed her gaze.

“Aw, he’s still feeling the bitter sting of rejection? I hate to say it, but good.” She didn’t fool Toby. He simply arched a brow. “Tell you what, Tob, he can come down here to me or I can put you on your ass and go to him.” She stepped forward but turned and pointed across the club to the mirrored area above the bar. Her move put her right beside her brother, and she could tell by the sudden tension riding his shoulders that he was shocked. She waved and blew a kiss toward the mirror.

Let the man whose gaze she could feel like a tactile caress suck on that one.

“You’re baiting him,” Toby said between clenched teeth. His big chest moved up and down, and something like a cough spilled from him.

She looked up at Toby and shrugged. “I have a message to deliver—a little something that was left on my front porch. So what’s it gonna be? You on your ass with me up there in his face? Or him down here with me in his face?”

Toby clammed up again and said nothing.

Daly sighed. Loudly. “I’m a total badass now, Tob. Seriously, you don’t wanna mess with me.” She amazed herself by keeping a straight face. Badass she was not. That was one reason she’d failed miserably as a cop.

Toby took a step back and Daly almost laughed, until the air around her charged and she caught a whiff of cedar. She wondered if she glowed, with the electricity arcing between her and her prey.

“Nirvana is not the blowing out of the candle. It is the extinguishing of the flame because day is come.” His voice was deep … moving.

She shuddered, and could no more have prevented the agony flowing through her than she could have stopped breathing. It escaped on a moan, and she wanted to rail against the injustice of that. It had been over two and half years since she’d seen him. Three since he’d touched her. But Jeremiah Copeland still had the power to command her responses.

It was more than the deep timbre of his voice warming places she had thought frozen, and more than the loss she felt at hearing it.

It was his use of the name he’d always called her—a shortened version of her own … Day. Perhaps his use of the private game they played with each other so long ago added to the pain. Whatever it was, the words tore into her, leaving devastation in their wake.

She could not turn around. She would not turn around. “Rabindranath Tagore,” she answered, naming the author of the quote.

Daly glanced at Toby. His face was granite, but there was pity still shining brightly in his eyes. She straightened her spine and cleared her throat. To the man at her back she said, “Day knows the secrets you try to hide but returns time and time again.”

She turned then and absorbed the sucker punch. How could she have forgotten his rugged strength—the wide shoulders, thick chest, and slim hips? His long, strong legs and big hands? How could she have misremembered the glacial blue-gray magnificence of his eyes, the sculpted cheekbones and the taunting curve of his lips?

Their gazes met, and the distance between them fell away while hollowness filled her at the same time. How would she be able to survive this meeting without touching him or begging him to touch her?

He cocked his head, forehead wrinkling as his brows lowered. A single lock of hair fell from its place and she noticed the gray at his temples. He was only thirty, but good God, what that gray managed to do for him was unbelievable. She wanted to sink her hands into his hair and pull him down to meet … stop it.

Her body didn’t listen. Her palms ached to trace the planes of his face, move lower, and sink into the heavy muscles of his chest. Well over six feet tall, with a face that made angels weep and a body to match, he had always been and remained pure sinful temptation.

“Who said that?” he asked.

All around them, music pumped and people begged for release. The sounds of sex bounced off the walls of his club and echoed in her ears. But in that moment the world stopped. She was caught in the ice of his eyes, reflecting the coolness of his soul. Yet all she wanted to do was burrow deeper into him and remain unfound. A tear tracked down her cheek and she pushed a fist to her stomach to hold everything in.

Daly took a deep breath, beyond caring that he’d witnessed her break in composure. “I did.”

We’ve Got Lauren Hawkeye!
by robinrotham on Jun 3rd, 2014 16 Comments »

Today the Smuteketeers are thrilled to welcome the fabulous Lauren Hawkeye! Lauren has just released A BRIDE FOR A BILLIONAIRE, the first novel in her anxiously awaited New Adult series A Virgin, A Billionaire and a Marriage, and she’s given us an exclusive excerpt for our readers! Lauren is also holding a contest just for Smutketeers and giving away a $25 gift card, so keep reading after the excerpt for your chance to win.

A BRIDE FOR A BILLIONAIRE

For fans of Cruel Intentions and Dangerous Liaisons…

Matteo Benenati has spent his life wrapped in wealth and privilege. He is shallow, selfish, jaded—and he likes it that way.

When bold American art student Riley Tremaine crashes into his life, her light forces him to examine the dark places inside of his soul, the ones he thought he’d buried with his father. He knows he should let her go… but he’s never claimed to be a good man.

When Matteo is pitted against his unscrupulous stepsister Emilia Guerra in a bid for his late father’s empire, he must decide between honor and vice. In need of a wife—and desperate to possess her—Matteo makes Riley an offer she can’t refuse. She will be his bride—in every meaning of the word—so that he can protect his legacy.

But Matteo soon learns that Emilia’s soul is darker even than his own. And by marrying Riley, he has made her a pawn in a power struggle that could shatter their world.

Smutketeers Exclusive Excerpt:

“Before you make up another reason that you should go, perhaps you will think rationally about how you are feeling.” He places his glass on the table, looks me over with those rum colored eyes. They’re fringed by dark lashes that any woman would kill for. “Tell me. And don’t lie. I will know.”

As I meet his stare, I feel a jolt of heat pass through me. I think that I’m imagining it—though he is everything that I’d ever daydreamed of for a wild Italian fling—the sober set of his face makes me think that maybe, just maybe, I’m not.

“Tell me.” The intensity in his eyes, on his face, tells me that I don’t actually have any choice but to do as he says… this is not a man who will be refused. I part my lips to answer, and his gaze tracks the movement, making me feel like he’s the lion and I’m the gazelle… and that I’m about to become his dinner.

In a sexy kinda way.

“I… my shoulder hurts.” I hate admitting the weakness, but I’m not entirely sure what he’d do if I lied.

As it is, he nods, seeming satisfied with my answer. “That’s what happens when you jump in front of a knife.”

“Hey.” My brow furrows as I glare at him. “How dare—”

“Can I have anything brought to you?” He continues on as though I haven’t said a word, and I stare at him, astonished. His choice of words hasn’t escaped me either… not can I bring you anything, but can I have anything brought to you.

Matteo Benenati is clearly a man who is used to having whatever he wants, just as he seems like he’s incapable of accepting the word no. It’s so different from my existence that I literally cannot fathom living that way.

My spine stiffens; the stitches in my shoulder pull my skin tight and I wince.

In an instant Matteo leans forward in his chair, his expression concerned.

“Drink.” Unceremoniously he shoves his snifter in my face, moving so quickly that I have no choice but to take it.

The liquid pretty, a dark brownish gold. Warily I sniff at it, then wrinkle my nose.

“It stinks.” No way I’m drinking this. “It smells like iodine.”

“That’s the peat.” Raising an eyebrow at me, he sits back in his chair, the lord at his leisure. In contrast I feel… plebeian. Like a servant girl, unused to the riches that surround me.

I don’t care for that feeling at all, and as if arguing with it, I press the chilled glass to my lips and take a tiny sip, letting the liquid spread out over my tongue.

It’s a mistake. Once the medicinal flavor passes, flowing down my throat, I taste a hint of something warm, salty and sweet. Him, his imprint left behind on the glass.

My eyes meet his over the edge of the glass, and once again I get the sensation that I am prey.

“You’re quite beautiful, you know.” Damn that sexy accent. I should be used to hearing the lovely lilt and flow of the Italian tongue by now… but when uttered in a dark, dangerous tone, it seems that I’m done for.

He shifts in his chair, and his scent again reaches me. My hormones stand up and pay attention, even as warning bells start to clang in my head.

Danger, Will Robinson.

But even though I know I’m at a distinct disadvantage—I’m half naked, injured, in a strange place—I find myself leaning toward him, a magnet pulling me closer.

“Yes, quite beautiful. And am I correct in assuming that you are also broke?”

What?” I rear back as though he’s slapped me. My mind reels. “Where the hell did you get that idea?”

He merely raises an eyebrow, and I can feel my temper begin to lick along my skin.

“Whatever you’re getting at, it’s not happening.” Damn it, I’m seriously pissed at him, but at the same time, my body is not at all pleased with this pronouncement. “I told you I didn’t want medical attention, or any of this, and you did it anyway. I don’t owe you anything.” I flap my hand in the general direction of the room, so he knows what I’m referring to.

And the bastard simply smiles at my anger, which only serves to infuriate me more. “I’m not asking you to have sex with me.”


A BRIDE FOR A BILLIONAIRE is available now on Kindle and coming soon to Nook.

New Release: NO PRINCE CHARMING!
by robinrotham on May 26th, 2014 10 Comments »

Hello, everyone! Angel Payne and Victoria Blue here…and we’re so happy to be visiting with our goddess friends from the Smutketeers!

We all had such a great time trading “naughty secrets” with each other during our luncheon in New Orleans, at Channing Tatum’s place, Saints & Sinners–so Victoria and I thought…why not continue the fun by dragging–errr, we mean bringing–Killian and Trey Stone, stars of our new contemporary erotic romance, NO PRINCE CHARMING, along with us to share some of their own naughty secrets…

Killian: *Lifting a commanding brow* Angel, you know the Stone family doesn’t share the dirt from under our rug with the rest of the world.

Trey: *Rolling his eyes and putting his feet up on the coffee table* Damn, Kil. You’re such an uptight ass. What do you want to know, babe? I’m an open book–especially for cuties like you. I have a soft spot for redheads…just sayin’.

Killian: You have a “soft spot” for anyone with a double-X DNA strand, brother.

Trey: Beats the hell out of living like a goddamn monk until I find The One–like a certain Stone Global Corp CEO I know.

Killian: It’s called being a productive member of society. You should try it sometime.

Victoria: *Spreading her arms* Boys, you have an audience! Can we just pretend to be civil?

Trey: *Giving her a very long once-over* Well, hel-lo there, creator of mine. When did you sneak your gorgeous ass into this cozy little blog?

Victoria: Behave. Or we’ll take your “i” devices again. Seriously, we’re here today on this fantastic blog to talk about NO PRINCE CHARMING, so let’s do that.

Killian: I’m glad you brought that up, Victoria. *Arching another really irresistible brow*. I really want to talk to you and Angel about the title of this thing.

Angel: *Steps over* Don’t get any wild ideas, Mr. Stone. The title sticks. No negotiations.

Killian: *Pinching bridge of his nose* But…this constantly comparing me to a fairy tale character…it’s impossible to live up to.

Angel: *Taking advantage of the opportunity to palm his amazing chest through his tailored dress shirt and tie* You’re very up for the task, baby.

Victoria: And actually, we said you’re NO Prince Charming…not the other way around.

Killian: People still think it’s a play on words. I’m destined to fail.

Victoria: I agree with Angel. I think you can handle it, handsome. I don’t think you’re going to get a lot of pity from the ladies out there, but nice try.

Killian: Where’s Claire when I need her?

Angel: So…you are admitting to needing her?

Killian: *Eyes growing soft* More than my own breath.

Trey: *As Angel and Victoria sigh together* Gag.

Killian: *A soft smile curling his sinfully full lips* I guess it’s not such a bad thing, having the world read about how I fell hard for my little fairy queen.

Victoria: Yes, Killian…we feel fortunate to have put your story to paper. But what about that big secret you’re still keeping from her…hmmmm?

Trey: Yeah, brother, what about that? *Chuckles* Shit like that could really ruin a man as great as you. *coughs*

Victoria: Hey! What’d I say before? Keep this one clean, boys.

Killian: *Straightening his sleeves and lifting a brow at Trey.* The lady has spoken, brother.

Trey: *Eyeing Victoria again.* And what a fine lady, indeed.

Angel: *Whacking his shoulder.* Behave. Now.

Victoria: Killian, why don’t you tell us how you actually meet Claire in the book?

Killian: Finally. A subject worth talking about. Asshat here *motioning to Trey* can’t keep his dick in his pants to save his life, so Claire and the company she works for come to clean up the PR nightmare he created for our family and our company. From the minute I saw her, I knew I had to have her. *Gives an awkward shrug.* It was that simple.

Claire: *Walking in, earning her the instant smile of a certain tall, dark, and gorgeously-attired hunk on the blog.* I don’t quite remember it in such basic terms, Mr. Stone.

Killian: *With a flirtatious smirk.* Is that so, Miss Montgomery?

Claire: You caused me quite a few restless nights. And angst-filled days, too.

Killian: Including the one where I called and woke you up, then asked what you were wearing, and commanded you to start touching yourself, and–

Trey: Oh, God. Now I really am going to hurl.

Angel: On that note, perhaps it’s better if we all get our asses out of here…and let these two have a bit of room. A-hem!

Victoria: Speaking of hems…wait up, writing partner of mine. We have to finalize our fashion choices for the RomCon conference, coming up June 19 – 22! We’ll both be there, signing paperback copies of Killian and Claire’s story at Friday Night’s book fair. We also have a very fun game for the “Dancing Through the Decades” party following that!

Angel: I can’t wait!

Trey: *Flashing an alluring smirk* Perhaps I can come along and…help you ladies.

Victoria and Angel, in unison: No!

Such an effective word, that “No”! Remember it for easy reference when you next hit up Amazon or your favorite e-reader outlet for an exciting new start to a sexy new series: The Secrets of Stone series begins with NO PRINCE CHARMING…available everywhere right now! **Buy Links for the book are also given below**

Contest!

Before you dash–WHY YES–we ARE giving away some prizes, too! We’re giving away a couple of SIGNED paperback copies of NO PRINCE CHARMING, as well as a third prize of a set of imprinted wine glasses with the “Prince Charming pump” on them!

A fourth Grand Prize Winner gets the book, the glasses, and a $10 Amazon gift card!

In return, we are looking for some CREATIVE posts on this thread, detailing one *moment* in your life that emulated the one in which Claire and Killian met in the book. We’re talkin’ electricity and major WOW factor here, girls. Was it your 5th grade crush? Your college art professor? A cute boy at a club? And what happened afterward? Don’t be shy…c’mon, bring out your inner Smutketeer and let it rip!

In order to give you time to create some SUPER good answers, we won’t pick a winner until Tuesday, May 31st.

**EXTRA CREDIT: Preclude or follow your story with your favorite piece of dialogue from the scene we just referenced from the book: the very first time Killian and Claire meet. Remember, there are a few other people in that scene, too, so perhaps your favorite didn’t even come from Killian or Claire, but somebody else in the sequence. We look forward to having your feedback!

We are so thrilled and excited to bring Killian and Claire to the page for you. Their story will continue in October 2014, with Book 2 in the Secrets of Stone series, NO MORE MASQUERADE.

Make Me Burn Is Out! Blazing Hot Contest!
by R.G. Alexander on May 19th, 2014 109 Comments »

Celebrate good times-COME ON! Book 2 in the Fireborne series MAKE ME BURN is out today!!

MakeMeBurn72lg(1)From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author R.G. Alexander

One wrong move and it all goes up in flames.

Fireborne, Book 2
Aziza Jane Stewart is the last of the Fireborne, and so far it’s been nothing but a curse, destroying her family and putting everyone she loves in danger. Now she’s on a quest to find her brother’s portion of the power that flows in her veins and track down the murdering Jiniyr who are a threat to her loved ones.
She and her Enforcer lover Brandon are officially “in a relationship”, but she’s still torn between two men who both set her on fire. Brandon’s duties are driving a wedge between them, and her need to protect her Jinn guardian isn’t helping. Exiled and stripped of his powers, Ram is focused on satisfying his darkest urges…and tempting her to come along for the ride.
When Aziza discovers Brandon has been keeping news of ritualistic murders from her and the evidence is pointing at Ram, all bets are off. It’s time to find her own answers, embrace what’s inside her and make her own rules, damn the consequences.

Warning: Explicit content, and even more danger and heavy drinking than book one. Fetish clubs and role-play, whips and chains, voyeurism and exhibitionism. More inappropriate use of supernatural powers for deviant activities. In other words, burning down the house.

BUY NOW at Samhain Amazon B&N
