Human rights lawyer Leonardo Duarte wants to destroy Satyanna Darling, the woman who disappeared after a weekend of earth shattering sex…along with his priceless sculpture. But when he finds her in a Brazilian prison a year later he realizes she didn’t act alone and blackmails her into helping him find the man behind the theft.

Satyanna wants to return to the US and stay out of prison, but she knows Leonardo won’t let her, unless she takes him to the man who really stole from him. As they embark on a cat and mouse game to find the man with all the answers, dodging their attraction to each other becomes even more difficult.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

In this second book of the Brazilians. Leonardo is the one who is captivated. However he believes he is betrayed by the beautiful Satyanna. He couldn’t believe her audacity, she seduced him while her partner Harry stole a priceless statue. One with more sentimental value to him than monetary.

When she calls him from prison a year later, she isn’t sure what his reaction would be. All she is sure of is she wants to go home to the United States and start over. This is part of that conversation, a favorite scene.

Leonardo’s jaw tightened. She saw the muscle flicker. “He stole from me.”

She chewed on her lower lip. “He did. When he took me on this trip to Brazil, he sold me on the idea we’d spend some time together and have fun. I came along because I wanted to believe him, and I did. Even though he wasn’t the best role model, he cared for me in his way. Or so I thought.” She took a deep breath. “Will you help me get out?”

He stepped toward the bars, and she toyed with the metal. The atmosphere around her shifted, and keeping the stare proved difficult. There was a strange gleam in his eyes. Her entire body roared, her flesh a lot weaker than her resolve. There was no way in hell she would give in to that attraction again; she just had to leash her hormones.

“Under one condition. If I take you out of this place and keep you from being accused of the crime I know you committed, you are mine,” he said, his voice dropping an octave when he pronounced the last word. His rich, unforgiving Brazilian accent was like the cherry on a hot fudge sundae.

She blinked. “Yours?”

His jaw clenched. “You will help me find Harry. You will stay under my watch until I find him and get my sculpture back. If not, I guarantee you this dirty prison won’t be the worst thing that happens to you.”
Brazilian Revenge (The Brazilians) (Kindle Locations 347-357). Entangled Publishing, LLC. Kindle Edition.

Thus we embark on a tale of intrigue and murder. Topped off with sexual frustration, need and finally an explosive release. A heart rending story guaranteed to please.

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Maxwell Sauvage was born into a life of privilege…and boredom. As a “security consultant” to the powerful, he enjoys pitting his wits against the most intricate of security systems for business and pleasure.

Anya Swift is a woman with high-class tastes and a high-octane need for adventure. As an operative for International Art and Antiquities Recovery she stays just on the “right” side of the law, while satisfying her desire for the finer things and her thirst for adventure.

When a high tech camera catches Anya taking The Fortunate Buddha from the French Ambassador’s vault, Max is eager to help the provocative thief for his own reasons, not the least of which being that he set the camera. But after one stunning night of passion, Anya disappears. Now Max must find Anya before the Ambassador’s men and claim the thief for his own, but they are running against a clock, danger and deception.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Anya has stolen The Fortunate Buddha to return it to the proper owners. Unfortunately she sees a camera in the vault, one she knew nothing about. Now to replace the Buddha and escape with no one being the wiser. She needed help and that came in the form of Max. He could help her, she just had to fight the strong attraction she felt for him.

“I removed the Buddha from the vault. But I need to return it.” Her smile flickered, a fraction of uncertainty echoing in her words.

“You what?” Why did the words startle him? She’s a thief. I saw her take the manuscript. She’s linked to the disappearance of so many other items. That’s why I planted the flat cam, because it was just the thing to attract her. Score in one shot.

“I’m not going to say it again.” Her sultry little laugh knocked over his objections.

“All right.” He understood. He scouted their surroundings. Despite the number of couples on the dance floor, the music shifted to a slower moody piano piece. Tugging her more firmly against him, he enjoyed the supple feel of her warm softness relaxing into him. “You don’t have to say it again. But if you want my help, I want something in return.”

For a brief moment, he wondered at his words. Why would he challenge her? Wasn’t this what he’d wanted all along? To have her come to him? To seek him out? Here she was…in his arms. And he wanted to make a deal.

“I’m listening.” Her voice, low and husky, shot him through with warmth. Their first regrettable tango in Paris ended when she walked away. He’d blamed her, blamed himself. He’d given her too much power. But this was a chance to explore the passion simmering beneath every word.
Catch Me (Love Thieves #1) (Kindle Locations 300-310). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

With simmering lust and even hotter passion this book leads us on a merry chase in more ways than one. Danger and intrigue throughout this wonderful tale.

I can’t wait to see what Heather has in store for these two.

Her Marine Prince
by
Heather Long

Small Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Princess Francesca “Frankie” Grace has no interest in scandal or pomp and circumstance. Her desire for a military career puts her on a collision course with retired Marine Hugh Dillon.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

Princess Francesca is no ordinary princess. She wants to follow in her father’s footsteps and serve in the Royal Marines. Unfortunately they don’t permit women in their ranks. Fortunately Frankie knows somewhere that does. The USMC allows women and she wants in. The only prerequisite she doesn’t meet yet is residency. Beyond that she is also going to need Prince Armand’s approval as well.

When she approaches her father, he issues a challenge to her. Complete this mock basic training camp program and he will support her all the way.

The camp is run by Hugh Dillon a former Marine and acquaintance of her father. Hugh has been told not to take it easy on Frankie. This must be a true test as to whether she can handle joining the Marines.

I love a strong woman and Frankie certainly is that. This is a favorite passage from hand to hand training.

“You four switch partners and work on choke holds. Frankie, you’re with me.”
Her heart pounded at the invitation wrapped in the order. Leaping off the fence, she strode to the center of the ring. The others headed to the separate areas and began grappling for a chokehold.
Suddenly, she was locked in Hugh’s arms and, for a split second, his arm tightened on her throat. Real panic swamped her, and she slapped his forearm before fighting to grip his fingers. Sweat on her hands and his made it almost impossible. His lips pressed close enough to her ear for her to feel his breath. “When you’re in a fight, you should pay attention to the person closest to you, not what’s happening elsewhere.”
Slamming her head back, she jammed her foot into his instep. The moment his arms loosened, she broke the hold and caught his forearm. One moment he had her, and the next she flipped him. Training had her holding his arm as he struck the ground.
Oh crap.
The last thing Hugh expected when he seized on her distraction to deliver a lesson was to find himself flat on his back with her in control of his arm. Shock rippled across her fierce expression, and her grip on him loosened. “Sorry.”
Huh. Unwilling to let her back down, he adjusted his grip and tugged her off her feet with the intention of flipping her. A fresh spark of surprise broke through and, instead of going where he sent her, she became dead weight. He had to let her go and roll, lest her knees slam into his chest.
Jumping to his feet, he pivoted to face her. Frankie hadn’t wasted any time in standing. “Nice.” He paid her the compliment. “Now defend.” How much did she know? The best way to learn was to come at her in a series of feints to see which one she would fall for. Speed was definitely on her side. Although slighter than him and definitely shorter, she moved with grace and alacrity, avoiding his more obvious feints while not leaving herself open for a real blow. Forearms up, she blocked a couple of lighter jabs and he pulled the punches enough to avoid real harm if her guard came down.
The last thing he wanted to do was explain a black eye to her father or her bodyguards. When she gave him no openings up top, he went to sweep her legs and ended up with a snap kick to his chest. The blow knocked him off balance, and he tumbled.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 666-684).  . Kindle Edition.

 

The story that unfolds will have you laughing, shaking your head, and sighing with approval. With sexual frustration and some very hot sex, a wonderful opening to this anthology.

Alexandre

Small Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Billionaire ruler of a Mediterranean principality, Prince Alexandre of Androcco took one look at Anastazia Carmichael and knew he wanted her. And he’s determined to have her. In his arms. In his bed. Any way he can get her.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

This one starts off with a major OOPS as Stazzi sends off an email meant for her best friend to the Prince. I really felt her pain as she tried to retrieve it unsuccessfully. All she could do is wait for the axe to fall. Within Prince Alexandre’s arrival is one of my favorite passages.

“I’m sure you’ll find Grant and Adrian more than sufficient—” She broke off her brisk dismissal as the prince stepped forward, totally invading her space as he lowered his head and spoke softly beside her ear.

“‘ A princely pain in the fucking ass’?”

Stazzi felt the color leech from her cheeks at hearing the prince quietly quote those words directly from her email. Even her lips felt numb, and she was pretty sure her eyes had widened guiltily as the prince moved back only slightly to look down at her in challenge, the warmth of his breath a soft caress against her jaw.

She couldn’t look away, was held totally captive by those predatory green eyes.

Intense, compelling eyes, that told her she hadn’t misunderstood him. That this man meant exactly what he’d said. He did want her. Physically. Tied to his bed or otherwise.

That realization was a little overwhelming. Flattering too, if she was honest with herself. The man was a prince, for goodness’ sake, and as rich as Croesus. What woman wouldn’t feel flattered at being told she was wanted by him?

Except it wasn’t going to happen. She was almost engaged, and even if she hadn’t been, she certainly didn’t supply those sorts of needs for the hotel guests.

Alexandre admired the light of rebellion that appeared in Anastazia’s eyes even as the color returned to her cheeks and she tilted her chin in an attempt to return his challenging gaze.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 1815-1825). . Kindle Edition.

When an expected proposal turns into a break-up Stazzi decides to take a chance. A double date with her friend Lizzie and Alexandre’s friend and security advisor Asher ends with the couples heading their separate ways. Stazzi and Alexandre into a steamy hot interlude with a surprise. Lizzie and Asher well lots is insinuated but nothing confirmed.

Sizzling sex intertwined into a tale of intrigue, jealousy, lust and love.

Seducing the Princess

Angel: The first time I met Gideon Black, I was a teen who hated him with a passion that kept me awake at night.

Gideon: A tease at sixteen, Angel has grown into an irresistible, kick-ass woman. I know exactly what I want to do to her—how thoroughly, and for how long.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

A troubled kingdom, a princess about to become queen and a bodyguard with more on his mind than just keeping her safe. Angel’s country couldn’t afford Blackheart security, yet the Council had hired them specifically Gideon to protect her from her Uncle’s nefarious efforts to eliminate her. One of my favorite passages is the disclosure of her problems to Gideon.

The more she talked to Gideon, the more her feelings were conflicted. She needed him, but she couldn’t afford him. She wanted him close, but she couldn’t afford to become attached to him— and there was a real danger of that if he stayed.
“I don’t know how I’m going to do it yet,” she admitted, “but in memory of my father I will restore this country to its former glory and make it safe. And I won’t waste one hot dime on myself.”
“There’s no question of payment.” Gideon’s tone suggested she had offended him. “I’m here to protect you, and that’s what I’m going to do.”
She let his words sink in, and then started fretting over the next problem.
“And I have to marry.”
“So?” Gideon probed.
Flattening her lips, she refused to say more. The last thing she wanted to share with Gideon was her opinion on marriage and sex, let alone sex with some stranger.
“You also have to provide an heir,” he said bluntly. It shocked her that he knew everything, but of course he knew everything.
Gideon would make it his business to know everything there was to know about a potential client.
“And you have to provide this heir within a year of ascending the throne,” he added. “My best guess? You can’t find the right man for the job.”
 
Her cheeks blazed red, and she retorted without thinking, “Why? Are you offering?”
“Why not?” Gideon’s powerful shoulders eased in a careless shrug. “Better the devil you know, Princess.”
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 3389-3400).  . Kindle Edition.
A very hot, twisty, up and down emotional and suspenseful read. The fire between Angel and Gideon is such that you can’t wait to see what will become of their relationship.

On the heels of his worse scandal yet, Prince Kostas of Mykorini decides to keep a low profile at his American beach home in the Hamptons. Taking a lover isn’t part of his plan until he meets Eva. Evelynn Fairchild knows she should be wary of the bad boy prince, especially when she’s considered the levelheaded one in her high profile family. But one earth shattering kiss makes her wonder if she should ditch her virginity status in what surely will be a one-night stand.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

Prince Kostas didn’t expect to be intrigued by a beauty merely reading on the beach, but he was. In an attempt to possibly run into her again he accepted an invitation to a costume ball. He didn’t have a costume so he made do with the clothes he had on hand, a business suit.

Evelynn never attended these events, but this time it was her parents hosting. She promised her sister she would at least come and make the rounds. She never expected to see the Prince there, let alone before she ever made it to the party. This is one of my favorite scenes.

“Are you, Eva?” His voice dropped an octave, becoming low and gravely. “Just waiting for the right person?”

He couldn’t have known she was a virgin. Couldn’t have known she would take his guess and twist it to suit her own needs, but suddenly and selfishly, she did. No, she wasn’t waiting for the ‘right person’ to turn on her naughty side, but she had been waiting for the right person to make her feel a hot awareness and desire like this. To make her feel something.

Somehow, this man— this bad boy prince of a small island outside of Greece— had been the one to wake that dormant part of her life. And she couldn’t make herself walk away from this moment, no matter how completely foolish it seemed.

“You know what? Maybe I am.” It hardly seemed like her own voice. Confident and husky.

She didn’t hide her eyes from him, and was thankful as she watched his gaze darken.

The only warning she had of his next move was the slight flaring of his nostrils, before his head swooped low. There was no asking permission, no gentle coaxing, just the sudden, intoxicating firmness of his mouth claiming hers.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 4570-4578). . Kindle Edition.

An explosion turns the Prince’s world upside down and Eva’s too as her sister leaks information to the press.

A delightful, hot read with twists and turns to keep you on your toes.

Sir Antony Richarden is determined to win the King’s Favor, a prize which will save his family estate and secure his nieces’ future. His only obstacle? Princess Estelle of Dirksbee, the woman he left at the altar is going to make this competition more than difficult. Never mind the fact he still has feelings for Estelle…

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

What can one say about a man who’s brother dies right before his wedding, and he has to postpone it? That he is awesome and takes on custody of his nieces, triplets who have already lost their mother. He is struggling to keep the girls in their home that is falling apart, one of the many things necessary is a new roof. On top of that Miss Crumb from the Royal Children’s Bureau keeps showing up to make their lives miserable. Trying to prove him unfit to care for them. A way out for him is to win the King’s Favor, a treasure hunt of sorts with a nice monetary prize as well as a renewal of his honor. Honor he somehow managed to lose when his brother died and his wedding called off.

Antony also has the ire of Princess Estelle for not contacting her after the postponement of the wedding. He had tried repeatedly and been turned away by her father’s secretary Boris and advised to stay away.

Both of them have been suffering and now the King’s Favor is the one thing that will elevate one of them back to the top of their game. Tony needs this to keep his nieces with him in their home. Estelle needs this to regain her reputation, tarnished by being left almost at the alter

They love each other still and by a cruel twist of fate the King has made them partners in this quest. This is just part of the conversation in the car. One of my favorite scenes .
If only she had known then that the man was her doom.

Her drug. Unfortunately, she was still as addicted as ever. “Don’t think I’m going to make this easy on you.”

“I wouldn’t expect it, Princess. Nothing about you was ever easy.”

She leaned forward. “You cost me my reputation.”

“That was not my intention.”

“You didn’t even have the decency to call. Not a single frickin’ call.”

He squinted, but said nothing. He folded his arms and slouched back, looking all masculine and cocky.

She laughed. “You think you’re going to win this thing, don’t you?”

“I don’t think, Princess. I know.”

“You should drop out. Leave now while you still have some shred of a reputation left.”

“I’m not a quitter, Estelle. You of all people should know that about me. I don’t give up. When I put my mind to something I follow through. Every time.”

“Except where I was concerned.”

He gave her a poignant stare, but refrained from speaking. He spent the rest of the short ride staring out the window, avoiding looking her way as if she were some kind of plague.

She was going to beat Tony. Show him exactly what type of tough stuff she was made of, what he lost by leaving her.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 5900-5910). Kindle Edition.

From here between the quest and the people working behind the scenes to destroy him, decisions are made. Love takes the fore and the sex is spectacular.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Desiree Holt is in my opinion the best of all romance writers. I have never been disappointed in any of her books. This book was no exception and I love the fact that it is a stepping stone to an exciting new Series that will be contributed to by many wonderful authors.

In this first book of the series, Grey is fulfilling a promise to a fallen comrade in arms.

When he breaks into a senator’s home to get the evidence he needs to take him down he is surprised by Athena. 

Athena is a cop who is tired of seeing her bosses be paid off and thumbing their noses at justice.

Disabling her and getting her to his home is a challenge, even more so as they try to figure out each other’s motives. Once they come to an understanding they realize they need sleep and Grey is fighting his attraction to her. This is a favorite scene as he is attempting to get bedding for her.

“I mean it about the couch, Grey. I’ve slept in worse places. Forget chivalry, okay?”

Maybe that was for the best. He could lock himself in his room until morning.

“Let me give you some blankets and stuff.”

She followed him to the linen closet in the short hallway where he rooted around for bedding. When he turned to hand it to her, she was right there, so close to him in that narrow hallway he could almost count her eyelashes.

What the hell. Dropping the bedding and dragging her up against his body. He had one fleeting moment to notice how well they fit together before winding her thick tresses around his hand to hold her head in place and bringing his mouth down on hers.
 Raw Edge of Danger (The Omega Team Series Book 1) (Kindle Locations 551-557).

From here everything gets interesting as they both try to get answers and find the correct person to take the whole thing down.

When they come together it is an explosion of emotion and some of the hottest sex you will ever read.

Love, Love, Love this beginning!

On the outside, Meagan Hollister appears to have it all—including a successful career. On the inside, a fifteen-year-old secret torments her, and the horrors she faced as a child are about to come back to haunt her.

Parker Darwin has been pursuing Meagan since the day they met. Though they’ve shared several steamy encounters, when he pushes for commitment—and submission in the bedroom—she runs cold.

Meagan’s past catches up fast and, terrified, she goes into hiding, feeding Parker only the vaguest of details. He has fallen hard. Even her reluctance to give herself over to him doesn’t hide her naturally submissive tendencies. But she holds her secrets close.

When all hell breaks loose, she insists on handling her problems alone. She can’t imagine a life that includes Parker—not permanently anyway. The hurdles are too high. The damage to her psyche is too extensive.

But will Parker accept Meagan’s insistent denial? Or will he breach her walls and show her another possibility?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Once again I have started a series somewhere in the middle instead of the beginning. That said, know I have already acquired the first two.

This book just jumps right in with a scene so hot I thought my kindle was going to melt. Trust me when I say this book will not cool off anytime soon. Well it does but not for very long.

The secret Meagan is keeping hidden should never have been. Even with her therapy she hasn’t dealt with everything. Her attraction to Parker, her undeniable submissive tendencies could bring her happiness with him as her Dom. If she would only let him all the way in.

Parker is patient but knows there is something she keeps hidden. When all hell breaks loose, Meagan continues to deny him what he desires most. Her submission, to him, forever. While he asks her often in this book this is one of my favorites.

A few seconds ticked by, unnerving me while his gaze penetrated my body. I couldn’t see him, and he had full view of me.
“When was the last time you had a serious relationship?”
“Never.”
“Never,” he repeated. “I see.”
Did he?
He set his hands on both sides of my head and leaned forward. His lips hit mine, softening me with their touch. And then he spoke against my mouth. “Submit to me. No one will know. I promise. We’ll keep it to ourselves for as long as you desire. You can trust me.”
The Prize (Kindle Locations 399-404). Becca Jameson. Kindle Edition.

 

I was really angry at many people in this book especially her parents and therapist. They should never have let her get away with the things she did. In spite of her physical age, her mentality dealing with the situation was that of a scared 10 year old. I kept waiting for her to wake up and smell the coffee. A quick satisfying read, one with suspense, sizzling hot sex, submission and a red hot Dom.

Excerpt Spring Blog - Copy

“Parker… Oh. My. God.”
That was all I managed to say before he threw his hand over my mouth.
I moaned into his palm in the near darkness, letting my head fall back against the wall so he could nibble a path up toward my ear. Lights wouldn’t have done me any good anyway since my vision was currently completely blurred. The dim light from under the closed door was enough.
His lips hit my ear. “I’m certain…” He thrust into me harder. “You don’t want…” And again, deeper. “Anyone to…” He pulled almost out. “Hear us…” He released my mouth and stroked his fingers down to cup my breast. The lace of my bra rubbed against my nipple, making me arch into his touch.
I grabbed his biceps and tugged his muscular body closer. “Do. Not. Stop.” My voice didn’t sound like me at all, but Jesus, I needed to come.
Again.
I’d had the first orgasm within moments of shutting the door to the janitor’s closet. What I wanted now was a mind-blowing vaginal orgasm. A slice of pure heaven. And something I’d only ever experienced under Parker Darwin’s control. Two times so far. I intended to make it three.
He chuckled. “Honey, I’m not in the habit of taking orders from my women.”
I gripped him harder while he held himself at my entrance, not thrusting back into me like my body craved. I released his arms to slide my hands up to his face, cupping his cheeks. “Please.” I tried to at least sound contrite. At that point I was willing to do almost anything to reach my goal.
Parker slammed back into me, pressing my back against the wall.
I released his face to wrap my fingers around the narrow counter under my ass for balance. My dress was bunched up around my waist, but it didn’t hinder my clit from rubbing against the base of Parker’s cock with every thrust.
So close…
“Come for me, Meagan.”
With his words, I shattered, my pussy grasping at his cock. My clit pulsed with raw need. A squeal escaped my lips, but Parker covered my mouth again and held his hand firmly against my lips.
“That’s it, honey. You’re so fucking gorgeous when you come.”
I groaned around his palm as he continued to thrust into me until he stopped abruptly, buried to the hilt, and let his own release fill the condom.
When he was spent, he heaved for air, his forehead leaning against mine. His hands smoothed up the bodice of my dress and over my shoulders until he threaded them into my hair.
I was going to have to do some serious surgery on my curls before I would be presentable enough to return to the reception.
“Submit to me,” he whispered against my mouth.
“Never,” I responded, giving him a brief kiss.
Even his lips were perfect. Soft. Sure. Maddening. He smiled against me.
The first time we’d had sex—two weeks ago after the bachelor and bachelorette parties of our respective best friends—he’d used those lips alone to make me come. And then he’d used his thick length to drive his point home.
He was right. The chemistry between us was intense.
I had assumed the secret, middle-of-the-night booty call had been a one-time event. We had both been a little tipsy, and the air was charged around us. We were staying at Cade and Amy’s house where Cade was fucking his fiancée, and our other two friends, Cheyenne and Riley, were engaged in not-so-subtle sex themselves. Both sets of friends right under our noses.
Who could blame us? No one was ever the wiser.
Until last night, we hadn’t spoken or seen each other since that night two weeks ago.
The rehearsal dinner.
I began fidgeting under his intense scrutiny the moment we arrived. I bit my bottom lip between my teeth a dozen times to keep from being obvious. But it wasn’t easy. Parker lit a fire in me I never knew existed. He was tall with broad shoulders and thick, dark chocolate hair that begged me to run my fingers through it. When he smiled, it reached from ear to ear, bringing out a dimple on both cheeks.
After the rehearsal dinner, we fucked in the back seat of his limo, heedless of the driver in the front seat.
What the hell was wrong with me?
I’d never had sex this good. And worse, I probably never would again.
I was perfectly willing to keep the liaison going as long as we were both on the same page.
Was I interested in submitting to him and his lifestyle?
Fuck no.
If he wanted to fuck me in a closet until my brain rattled, I was game. Bring it on.
Parker pulled out slowly and removed the condom, wrapping it in a tissue. “You’re so loud.”
I smiled and shrugged while I hopped down from the perfectly positioned narrow counter and reached for my panties on the ground. “You managed to muffle me okay.”
“You think anyone missed us?”
I tugged my dress over my hips, grateful Amy had chosen black, fitted evening gowns for her formal wedding. The silky material fell back into place around my legs, reaching my ankles. The long slit up the side had totally worked in my favor. Parker had ogled my bare leg at least a dozen times during the wedding, pictures, and dinner. And he flipped on the light and did so again now.
I squinted at the brightness while adjusting the bodice around my boobs. They weren’t the largest set, but they were ample for my narrow frame, and I had to admit they looked incredible in this dress. Thin straps over my shoulders held the dress up, but the low V and the way the silk gathered under my breasts made them seem quite prominent.
Parker’s gaze skated up from my exposed leg to my chest. “Woman…” He reached between my breasts, pinched the fabric of my dress and bra with two fingers, and pulled both layers down until my nipple popped free.
“Parker…” My voice was breathy. How could he make me so horny again after two fantastic orgasms? My nipple puckered.
He lowered his head and sucked the sensitive tip into his mouth.
Hard.
I rose onto my tiptoes and grabbed his waist. He needed to stop this madness, or we really would be missed. As it was, we were safe. We’d only been gone a few minutes, and the reception was now well underway with the lights dim and the dancing in full swing.
He lifted his gaze to meet mine. “Submit to me,” he murmured again.
I smiled broader, fighting the effect he had on me. My nipple stood at attention, the cool air of the room wafting over the tip to tease me. “Not in this lifetime.”
He smirked. “I’ll wear you down.”
I lifted my brows. “Don’t count on it.”

Announcing a New Series: Cursed in Stone – Five Novellas from Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne


CIS websiteHeader

It is my great pleasure to introduce
Cursed in Stone, a Gothic Romance series from Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne
with After Glows Publishing

Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy

Constantine De La Fontaine fought in the Third Crusade, certain he was on the side of the righteous. After being wounded in battle, he’s tended to by the beautiful and mysterious Amara, a woman who’s hiding a dangerous secret. She’s the caliph’s daughter, and he’s promised her hand in marriage to the demon who’s made him powerful. Con and Amara’s love is white hot, but forbidden. When the demon finds out about their tryst, he lashes out in a jealous rage, cursing both to live out eternity in their own personal hells.

For centuries, Con lives as a gargoyle, cursed in stone and destined to watch others find love, with no knowledge of Amara’s fate. Able to take human form only during the three nights of the full moon, he wanders the streets of the cities the curse transports him to, lost and broken hearted. Then, a whisper on the wind and a magical pull to a gemstone gives him new hope for breaking his curse and finding out what’s happened to his lost love. A cloaked figure, an ancient tome, and more gemstones slowly begin to help him unravel the mystery of his curse—and possibly his freedom.

This incredible saga unfolds in a series of five novella-length stories, each set a different city around the world.

The series begins with Sunstone’s Fire, releasing on April 5, 2016, then followed by Opal’s Seduction, Amethyst’s Imbalance, Sapphire’s Star, and wraps up with Emerald’s Light on October 11, 2016. Learn more at: Cursed In Stone
