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…

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.

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.

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. 


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?

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?

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.

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.

ATD large

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

Erin’s giveaway: Set of all three Sapphire Falls book: Getting Out of Hand, Getting Worked
Up and Getting Dirty in winner’s choice of e-format and some swag :D




She has complete control…and he’s determined to take it away

A librarian in the small town of Hood River, Natalie Clayton’s world is very nearly perfect. After a turbulent childhood and her once-wild ways, life is now under control. But trouble has a way of turning up unexpectedly—especially in the tall, charismatically sexy form of Paddy Hurley….

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. Now he wants more…even if it means tempting Natalie and her iron-grip control. But there’s a fine line between well-behaved and misbehaved—and the only compromise is between the sheets!

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.

Cari’s message: Hi everyone! Happy summer! If you’re looking for a summery treat, may I recommend a serving of Harper from Rocked’s dried strawberries? They’re a yummy, fun way to get your fruits in! Harper’s a chef and a foodie and if you read Rocked, I bet you’ll get hungry more than once…and in more than one way. ;) Have a great time beating the heat and thanks for stopping by!

What happens when a prostitute falls in love with her client, but doesn’t plan to quit her job?

I’m Star, a sex worker in Amsterdam’s Red Light district. I invite you to step through my window. Careful, though. Observing my passionate exchanges may destroy your preconceptions.

I adore my profession. I’m many things in the course of one evening—whore, lover, nurse, psychologist and friend. But above all, I’m still a woman. Maybe the truths I’ve discovered about myself by serving others will help me deal with one customer who’s come to mean more than all the others.

There’s no doubt Rick desires me, but lately our business arrangement seems personal. How can I choose between the profession I love most, and the person I can’t live without?

I’m greedy. I want both.

Jayne’s message: Hey everyone, Jayne here, I’m having a fantastic summer steaming up my office writing sexy new stories.  I hope you’re all staying HOT!

PRE-Order for August!

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye comes the exhilarating conclusion to Mal, Adele and Dorian’s story—the improbable young romance that began in Three Little Words…

Adele Cavanaugh wasn’t looking for a man at all… and she found two.

Happy for the first time ever, Adele is finally moving past the tragedy that tore her world apart. But everything changes… and Adele knows that only too well. Just as soon as everything goes right, it falls to pieces yet again.

Dorian’s band gets an opportunity that will take him away from her and Mal.

Adele’s tormentors reappear.

And Malachi’s ex-girlfriend Emma wants him back.

There are too many hearts on the line… and all three question if they can make it in a world set up to run two by two.

Please note: this story also includes a sexy new tattoo (his), an abduction fantasy (theirs), a roller derby music video and, of course, Humper the cat.

Lauren’s message: My perfect summer day involves lying on a lounger at the side of the ocean, ereader in one hand, frosty margarita in the other… mostly naked cabana boy fanning me from nearby. I hope your summer is just this awesome!
Happy reading!

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.

HelenKay’s message: Hello!  I happen to live in Southern California, which is sort of like living in a place with perpetual spring. The summer does get a bit warmer, and when it does I love to sit under a tree with a great book and a cold drink. I hope you all get to do that this week!
HelenKay’s giveaway: a digital copy of my Cosmo Red-Hot Read, EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Members Only, Book Five

It’s been years since Angel and Davis said “I do” but husband and wife are no longer their most important labels.

He demands nothing short of her complete submission and she finds her place in the world. On her knees—at his feet. Now as members of The Library, a private BDSM club catering to the dark and decadent, they get to explore fantasies they never expected to have.

Marriage. It was supposed to be everything. But for Angel and Davis, it is only the beginning.

Jennifer’s message: My favorite part about summer, other than the hot temperatures which I love, is the SWIMMING! I love everything about it. Smelling like sun tan lotion, laying out by the pool, swimming with my son, getting to wear a bikini (I have a slight bikini obsession), flip flops, and sand, and cabana boys, snow cones. I absolutely love it. Wish everyday could be a summer day. I would definitely be a happy girl!!

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.

Two men, one woman, and a romantic vineyard. Summer’s never been this hot…

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.

Jess Dee’s message: While all of you living in the Northern Hemisphere are lucky enough to be soaking up the gorgeous summer sun, relishing the steamy, hot days and sultry nights, please spare a thought for poor, little ol’ me. 

I’m stuck down here in a wintery Sydney, freezing my &%*ing #$@s off.
If you’re looking for a perfect read to complement those gorgeous summer days and nights (or heat up the winter ones), I have just the thing:  SUMMER WINE – book 1 in the Tastes Of Seduction series.
Jess Dee’s giveaway: Winner’s choice from my backlist




It all starts with sex under a desk…

Heart of Fame, Book 7

After yet another month without a lead singer, the band Synergy is on the verge of calling it quits. 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.

Lexxie’s message: May your summer be as hot and wet as a summer Down Under…and by hot, I mean full of half naked men with arses like this (picture of sexy bums sadly did not come through)

and by wet I mean….well…I’m sure y’know what I mean, right? ;)

It’s all fun and games until their hearts are on the line.

Are You Game? Book 1

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. Instead I’m going to sit here and sulk :(  because while all you people in the northern hemisphere are enjoying summer I’m stuck in the arctic freeze masquerading as Sydney, Australia. So when you’re sitting on the beach or hanging out in the park or enjoying the great outdoors under the gorgeous summer sun think of me hiding out in my office under a heated blanket with fifty billion trillion layers of clothes on. *some one pass me a hot book to read*

Rhian’s giveaway: $5 gift card and digital copy of Truth or Dare–another book in the Are You Game? series

Burning Up by Sami Lee

Compliance by Lexxie Couper
Bethany’s got a thing for two hot guys: a nerd and a jock. She’s also got a fantasy that will be mutually pleasurable for them all. She isn’t expecting complete and utter sexual domination though…nor losing her heart to one of them.
Party Of Three by Jess Dee
Spencer Allen’s quest for true love just hit a brick wall—his best mate, Levi Barret. Their mutual lust for the same woman, Chelsea Holden, could spell the end of their friendship…or the beginning of a whole new relationship.
Pass the Parcel by Rhian Cahill
For one night Kitty will be everything Ethan and Finn want. But living out her wildest fantasies was never meant to be this good. And when the sun comes up she’ll discover she’s given them more than her body. She’d given them her heart.



Bad Idea by Damon Suede


All Romance Ebooks:


Barnes & Noble:

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. I’m doing my annual writing binge at the moment, sleeping bizarre hours and eating gummi bears by the metric ton. I do think I shaved once last week, but it’s getting freaky up in this joint while I finish the new novel. LOL

Because, as Hunter Thompson says, “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” So live large and enjoy life…even if it’s through a good book! Happy Rest-Of-Summer to you!

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.

    Some wonderful reads here! Some I have already and some I just got. Thank you for sharing this. I need to go read now.

    My favorite thing about summer – what jumps to mind first is all these wonderful books to read. ;-) Other than that, I love the fresh produce that we start to get in the markets. Cherries and raspberries, rhubarb and asparagus. Yum!

  2. 2

    Yay Palooza time!!!! I see so many of my favorite authors here and more that look like they could be added to my favorites. This is awesome.
    My favorite things about summer…hmmm…I would have to go with the fact that it’s a chance to go outside and have some fun in the sun and sand. :D I love going to the beach with my husband and our puppies. It’s definitely the highlight of my summer.

  3. 3

    Living in Florida is pretty much live in summer weather, but is would have to be taking the time off the visit family. And being able to read anytime and staying up as late as I would reading and not having to got to work. :)

  4. 4

    Summer is all about the beach, swimming, warm weather and vacation time :-D

  5. 5

    My favorite thing about summer is….laying in the sun and my son being out of school

  6. 6

    My favorite thing about summer (I live in Florida so it’s really summer all year) is actually being able to have Friday lunches with a couple of friends who are teachers. It’s nice to have girl time :)

  7. 7

    The best thing about summer is more time to read because I don’t have to get my boys to bed and ready for school the next day!

    tweeted on twitter but can’t figure out how to see the link @kporter65

  8. 8

    My favorite thing about summer is that I get to spend more time with my kiddos and hubby (he’s a teacher) since school is out. Lots of family time and day trips, just exposing them to all kinds of different things.
