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…

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.

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.

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.

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
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?
“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

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.
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.
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.

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?

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.
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!!
Jennifer’s giveaway: any e-book from my backlist. Winners Choice!
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.
Sami’s giveaway: a copy of Unforgettable Summer
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.
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? ;)
Lexxie’s giveaway: $5 Amazon gift card and the first ebook in the Heart of Fame series
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
BONUS from Sami, Lexxie, Jess and Rhian
Burning Up by Sami Lee
Pam Spencer is sick of looking for love in all the wrong places. Sure, she wants a solid relationship, but if steamy casual sex is on offer, who is she to turn it down? Especially when the offer comes from not one, but two smokin’ hot firefighters.
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: 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
Damon’s giveaway: Any one of my audiobooks (Bad Idea, Horn Gate, or Hot Head) along with the ebook copy of that title

Strip Club Series, Book 1.
There once was a place the women of Austin, Texas could mix fantasy with flesh and experience erotic temptations for the price of admission and a handful of dollars. Iron Rods. The strip club is now in disrepair though and Bennett Truitt, estranged son of the club’s aging and half-crazy owner, wants to replace the landmark with condos. He hires feisty Tatum Reynolds to manage the club, sure she will fail, but not before he has a chance to sample her skills in bed.
After another rejection letter, Tatum realizes she’ll never be a professional dancer on or off Broadway. Down on her luck, she’s determined to make the run-down club successful no matter what, or who, it takes. She never expected her new boss to be so enticing they’re breaking doors down to get to each other, get their clothes off, taste each delectable inch.
Brenna’s message: I can’t imagine a summer without a cool drink and hot men wearing next to nothing. And at Iron Rods – the best little fictional strip club for women in Austin, Texas – women can certainly have BOTH! Why not pour a cold cocktail of your own and check out the book that’s receiving five star reviews from the critics? Or are you afraid to get too hot this summer?
Brenna’s giveaway: Prize package! Win an Iron Rods T-shirt and a copy of my August 15th release, Touched by Midas, from the SEALs Going HOT series with Desiree Holt, Cerise Deland and Samantha Cayto
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.
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.

ROBIN L ROTHAM
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.
Paramedic Bart Rigger finally has the life he wants rather than the one his father dictated, thanks to hot new fiancée Rhonda Giannetti. But a whirlwind trip to New Orleans puts it all at risk when he’s forced to confront unresolved feelings for his first love, tattoo artist Elijah Bell.
Originally published as part of the Midnight Ink anthology.
