During the several hours we were all downstairs, I found myself watching him closely and making a mental list of everything I learned. One discovery I made was that he likes his scotch with only one ice cube, not the three or four that usually fill a glass. He also seemed to enjoy the mini crab cakes, if the amount of them he ate was any indication. Having stolen several of them myself, I would have to agree they were delicious. The house has an amazing restaurant-style kitchen and a chef that caters to any of the client’s tastes, no matter the time day or night.
The man also seemed to only be on friendly terms with the short, pudgy man who had accompanied him. The rest of the gentlemen, like the girls, he mostly ignored, though several of the gentlemen clearly wanted to impress him. The man’s face had been a cold mask of indifference the entire evening.
I had briefly wondered if he was married, not that it stopped any of his companions from enjoying themselves. When I handed him his drink, I noticed a lack of a wedding band. This could mean nothing, since not all men wear bands, but if my husband looked like this man, he would be wearing a huge one—telling the world he is taken. Maybe he’s gay?
This is the first time that any man has requested me, and I never imagined it would be this man stepping through the door. I’m surprised. The entire time we were downstairs the only words he said to me was a polite “thank you” as I served him. He barely even looked at me. Why did he request a room with me?
If I’m honest with myself, I’m a little—a lot—relieved. He’s at least not old, fat, or a disgusting combination of the two. And I admit, begrudgingly, that he is sinfully attractive. The thought of this man touching, kissing, and penetrating me doesn’t make my skin crawl or my stomach bubble with acid. It scares me, but maybe if I close my eyes, I can pretend we met during a night of clubbing and this is all my own choice. Or maybe not.

My thoughts:

Uncovering Lily by Rene Webb is a steamy Erotic Suspense Romance. MacKay International #1. Meet,  Xavier Finch, Businessman and Lily MacKay, a virgin who  has been drugged, kidnapped in Paris and imprisoned in a Hong Kong brothel, where Xavier recognizes her.

Very steamy passion with danger, mystery, suspense,  plenty of romance and more. The characters are charming,  engaging and realistic.  The storyline is unpredictable and intriguing.  Kept me captivated from the first few pages to the last. Ms. Webb did an excellent job of convening the slave trade/traffic to her readers. Was not just an erotic romance, to me. Rene Webb is a new author to me. While, Erotic Romance is not my favorite genre, UNCOVERING LILY was interesting,  and an enjoyable read. I would recommend reading this book for fans of Erotic Romance,  and steamy romance.

I received a complimentary copy, however,  all opinions are my own.

A hot historical romance from USA TODAY Bestselling Romance Author Jess Michaels

Criminal Jack Blackwood has plenty of problems, from his complicated relationship with his brother to the plethora of men coming to dethrone him as king of the underground. What he doesn’t need is a rich, bored gentleman showing up to try to join his gang. Worse, he doesn’t need that gentleman’s sister, Lady Letitia Seagate, chasing after him demanding he keep her brother safe. If only the lady weren’t so damned intriguing.

Widowed Letty is desperate to protect her younger brother, even if it means matching wits with the notorious, charismatic Captain Jack. Only the man has far more to him than she ever expected, and his tempting kisses and smoldering promises leave her wanting more than she has ever dared before. Can Jack uncover the truth behind Letty’s darkest lies? And will they both survive the storm about to strike at the very heart of their passion?

Length: Full-length novel
Sensuality level: Hot and steamy

Jack has become melancholy in his lifestyle and looking for more. Enter, Lady Letitia Seagate, Claire ‘s widowed cousin. Who has also become stead in her life, she’s thinking of taking a lover. Jack is handsome, steady, sexy and dangerous. Jack’s story was everything I hoped it would be, I wasn’t disappointed.
Fast paced tale, filled with secrets, betrayal, danger, mystery, suspense, steamy, hot passion, flawed characters and Second chances. But does Jack have a chance for redemption, and finding the light in his darkness, thru Letitia? Can Letitia find her HEA and the love of a lifetime, if they survive the dangers ahead?
Once again, Ms. Michaels has a well written tale, with flawed characters, and passionate kisses. A masterfully written tale of love, redemption, finding a family and a HEA. I have thoughly enjoyed this series and highly recommend it to fans of steamy, dangerous and flawed characters, Historical Romance and awesome storytelling. A must read! Saddened to see this exciting, wicked series end, but looking forward to the next adventure. Enjoyable and a very satisfying read!

Excerpt from
Perilous Risk
Regency Risks, Book Three
By Natasha Blackthorne

His stare pinned her and she remained rooted to the spot like a cornered hare.
He lowered his head. She felt her eyes widening. Her heart beat harder and harder, deafening thunder in her ears.
He put his mouth to hers.
She couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. Couldn’t make a move.
Oh, God. Oh, God save me…
His full lips pressed hers, warm, soft, intense. She’d never known a man’s mouth to be so lushly sensual and yet so deliciously firm. From that touch, pleasure surged through her, tightening her nipples, and sending sparks of fire tingling into her belly and outward, all the way down to her toes. She couldn’t suppress the shudder that wracked her head to foot.
He lifted his head. Then he watched her, closely.
Edginess built inside her, combining with and intensifying the arousal pulsing in her blood. She licked her lips then let her breath out in a ragged sigh.
“Open to me, Rebecca.”
He’d spoken softly, oh so softly—but the steel beneath the gentleness sent shivers all over her. And not a little tingling excitement. Unable to bear the determined heat of his gaze, she stared at the bridge of his elegant straight nose. Dazed, afraid of him, yes, holy heavens yes, but far more frightened of the feelings that were rapidly leaping to life within her.
No, this couldn’t be happening. She had kept herself safe all these years since Jon. No emotionally dangerous entanglements. She was past all of this. He should be out chasing some young opera dancer tonight. She should be home, fast asleep in her chaste bed.

Book 1


We are so excited to have with us today, Marie Harte and her TROUBLEMAKER NEXT DOOR series! So set back and enjoy your visit with our guest!

Drumroll, please…..

The Troublemaker Next Door by Marie Harte

MBA&M: Why write a tale of four bachelor men and the women who love them?

MH: I’m a sucker for hot, sexy brothers. A tight-knit family adds an element of loving strength that only makes the heroes that much more endearing. And girlfriends living next door to big brother Mike? LOVE that close connection.

MBA&M:  A little background on the McCauley family?

MH: Beth and James are the matriarch and patriarch of the tight-knit clan. And they’re not without their own foibles. Then, from first book to last, there’s:

Flynn—The dark haired lothario, middle brother and wise-ass. He’s a sexy plumber with a head for business and a heart—and body—the ladies love. He knows how to treat a woman, but he’s holding out for that special someone, to capture in a relationship what his parents have.

Brody Singer—The blond McCauley, Flynn’s “twin” and business partner. Unofficially adopted at a young age, he’s spent his life as part of the family. He’s sexy and charming, but he’s got some issues stemming from trauma in his past. Sometimes scars run deep that don’t show, and he’s got a bellyful.
Cameron—The white-collared youngest in a manly, blue-collar family. Cam’s a financial genius who likes the finer things in life and isn’t afraid to be in touch with his emotions. He’s the lone head of reason in a family of knuckle-dragging bozos, or so he likes to think. He loves his brothers, but they’re always on his case. And then there’s his father… Talk about a headache.

Mike—The oldest of the four, mature, rational, and built like a pro-wrestler who eats giants for breakfast. He works with his father in their construction business. He loved and lost and has the kid to prove it. His life is good. He has his family, his adorable son, and if he’s a little lonely, so what? McCauleys love only once, and he lost his soul mate long ago. He’s never getting married again. Now if he could just convince his scamming kid and nosy family of that fact…

MBA&M:  A list of five things readers may not know about Marie Harte?

1. I have big feet. Size 10, and I love them.

2. Nothing embarrasses me…except for that one time a few weeks ago when I blushed trying to find my son an athletic cup at Dick’s—of all places. (Irony, no?) The guy trying to help me out was so friggin’ good looking. I write erotic romance, for heaven’s sake! Yet my face was on fire. I’m still baffled…

3. I drink close to a pot of coffee daily.

4. I have read the dictionary for fun. (And sometimes still do.)

5. I know how to commit the perfect murder. Muhuhahaha

MBA&M:  Lessons learned as an author?

MH: I never give up. Ever. No matter how many times I’ve been told no, I just keep writing. Because I know that sometime, somehow, someone’s gotta say yes.

Thanks for having me!


You are so welcome! Thank you, Marie, for spending time with us and our readers!! And never, ever give up 🙂

One scar.

One betrayal.

No escape.When Sloan Reynolds beats criminal charges,
Melissa Jones stops believing her wealthy, connected ex-husband will ever pay
for what he did to her. 

Derek Alexander can’t accept that—a tiny silver
scar won’t let him forget, and as a leader in the security business, he is
determined to get the man who hurt his fiancée.

Then the body of a former call girl turns up
dead. She’s the breakthrough Derek’s been waiting for, the link to Sloan’s
sordid past he needs. But as usual, legal paths to justice have been covered up
or erased.

Derek’s ready to do whatever it takes to protect
his family when his partner Patrick Knight devises a plan that changes

It’s a plan that involves coloring outside the
lines and taking a walk on the dark side. It goes against everything on which
Alexander-Knight, LLC, is based.

And it’s a plan Derek’s more than ready to

Standalone, M/F, HEA.

Nikki continued talking, but I wasn’t listening. Cold
realization flashed in my brain like lightening striking a tree.
Jessica Black. It was the name on the email Melissa had put in
front of me that day she visited our offices. The day she dropped a nuke on all
my dreams of a life with her, when she revealed my former “mentor,” her
ex-husband Sloan Reynolds’s secret double-life. He had high-end escorts all
over the country, and Jessica Black was his first careless slip. Melissa had
found it.
Nikki was still reminiscing as I spun around in my chair,
shaking my computer awake. Fingers flying over the keys, I pulled up all the
information I could find on the dead girl.
She’d been living in Baltimore for a year. I wondered if she
followed him from wherever they’d hooked up the first time. Why would she do
that? Was it possible she was in love with him? Was it for the money? Had he
promised her anything?
It didn’t matter. She’d disappeared off the police blotter from
the time she arrived there until now, when she’d turned up dead.
Reasons scrolled across my brain of all the possible causes of
death, but looking at her beaten face, all I could see was the photo Melissa
had put in front of me all those months ago.
My instincts were on high alert. Sloan was getting antsy, and I
knew what he wanted. Jessica Black might look like the real thing, but she
wasn’t it.
Substitutes would never fill the possession he felt. I’d followed
enough of these twisted fucks to know. He was coming for Melissa, and it was
just a matter of when.

The Sheik1200x1800


{Erotic Romance}



August 28, 2013

The Desert was Never Hotter!Pride and passion vie for supremacy between a haughty young heiress and a savage son of the Sahara in this fresh new telling of E.M. Hull’s romance classic.

A haughty young heiress for whom the world is a playground… A savage son of the Sahara who knows no law but his own…

“There will be inquiries.” I choked out. “I am not such a nonentity that nothing will be done when I am missed. You will pay dearly for what you have done.”
“Pay?” His amused look sent a cold feeling of dread through me. “I have already paid… in gold that matches your hair, my gazelle. Besides,” he continued, “the French have no jurisdiction over me. There is no law here above my own.”
My trepidation was growing by the minute. “Why have you done this? Why have you brought me here?”
“Why?” He repeated with a slow and heated appraisal that made me acutely, almost painfully, conscious of my sex. “Bon Dieu! Are you not woman enough to know?”

When pride and passion vie for supremacy, blistering desert days are nothing compared to sizzling Sahara nights…

THE SHEIK RETOLD by Victoria Vane and E.M. Hull is an exciting Erotic Romance. The Retelling of E.M. Hull’s classic, “The Sheik” written in 1919. Filled with passion,danger,the Sahara Desert, supremacy,romance, light BDSM. Can love find its place in the Sahara Desert? You must read this story for yourself to find out. An interesting tale of  a heiress, Diana Mayo, and the savage son of a Sheik,Sheik Ahmed Ben Hassan. While, I most admit, I have never read E.M. Hull’s version, which I understand had forced seduction,and rape, I have to say Ms. Vane did an excellent re-telling of “The Sheik Retold”. “The Sheik Retold” is different from Ms. Vane’s usual storyline,which I adore,by the way. The characters while engaging, are a bit over the top at times. While Ahmed is an alpha male,ruthless, he is also tender and can be gentle and giving. Diana,is strong-willed,independent,adventurous and her half-brother wants her dead. She just may have found the adventure of a lifetime, along with a love she never expected. A very intense,emotional story! Well written with vivid descriptions. Ms. Vane is a masterful storyteller! A must read for both erotic romance readers,readers of historical romance, as well as those who enjoy the re-telling of classic romances. An enjoyable read! I have not found a story yet, that Ms. Vane has written which I did not enjoy, and “The Sheik Retold” was no different! I received an ARC of this title for an honest review from the author.

Jamie Brenner RGB small crop 72dpiThree’s A Crowd: The Sweet Agony of the Love Triangle

By Logan Belle

I recently signed copies of one of my novels at Barnes & Noble in midtown Manhattan. The store employee who was helping me put autograph stickers on the books looked around at the other covers on the shelf, and said, “One woman and two men on some of these covers. That’s not love – it’s lust!” No, I thought – that’s a love triangle!

A love triangle, as defined by the Macmillan dictionary, is “a situation in which one of the partners in a romantic or sexual relationship also loves someone else.” And I’m a huge fan.

I was introduced to this messy emotional scenario at an early age thanks to General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful. But while I’d come to expect them on television, I was surprise by how often I encountered love triangles in classic literature: The Wings of the Dove. The Golden Bowl. And the ultimate triangle (at least in my mind): Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

When it comes to a steamy love triangle, not much can compare to the D.H’s. Lawrence erotic masterpiece: Connie is married to Cliff. Cliff can’t have sex. Connie gets hot and heavy with the game keeper, Mellors. But aside from all of the scandalicious sex scenes, Lady Chatterley’s Lover stands out in the way it examines money and class, the life of the mind versus life of the body, and then yes, love and sex. To me, it begs the question: can you have it all with one person, or is there always a choice to me made?

This is the heart of my erotic romance Miss Chatterley, a modern take on the Connie/Cliff/Mellors triangle. While the social penalty for cheating and divorce is not nearly as harsh as it was in 1920, the time of the original Chatterley, it could be argued that staying faithful is that much more difficult. Today, with an endless parade of hot guys (and girls) in the media, the ease of “meeting” people online, and fewer and fewer financial reasons to get or stay married, it’s never been more tempting to fall for “the grass is always greener.” But while a triangle is easy to form, it’s tricky to undo.

There is always a choice to be made. Connie loves her boyfriend and he loves her. But she’s attracted to someone else. And yet, with that someone else, she could never have what she has with Cliff.

It happens all the time…but that doesn’t give her any easy answers.

What is more important – love, or lust? Relationship, or freedom? Security, or possibility? Have you ever had to choose?

 Thank you,Logan! What an intriguing concept!

Personally,to me it would be love,anytime of the day? Relationship,of course? Security,I think? and no I fortunately have not had to chose,so there you go?


Miss Chatterley 

A four part e-serial  by Logan Belle.


I’ve loved Cliff since the day we met. For three years, he’s been my boyfriend and my best friend. But for the first time, something is missing. Sex. It’s been months since Cliff has touched me. And I don’t know how much longer I can wait—especially since I’ve met someone else. For the first time, I feel doubt.


Oliver Mellors is nothing like Cliff. He’s purely physical and intensely focused on my body. But then, he has to be: he’s my CrossFit trainer.

I know I can’t confuse sex with love. I know I shouldn’t risk love for sex. But now, caught between two men, I wonder: Is there a way to have both?

chatt1Part I: Hungry

Connie Chatterley isn’t exactly thrilled about the move to Palo Alto. What will she do in the land of tech billionaires and IPOs? But when her boyfriend Cliff says he needs to do it for his company, she agrees. Isn’t compromise a part of every good relationship? Once in California, Cliff spends all his time with his demanding assistant Ivy Bolton and shark-like investment banker Tommy Dukes, leaving Connie with nothing better to do than go to the gym. But when she starts training with rugged CrossFit coach Oliver Mellors, Connie feels a dangerous attraction to the sexy stranger. And after one shocking moment of weakness, the move isn’t the only thing Connie starts to question.

Chatt2Part II: Dirty


Consumed by desire, Connie’s body yields to Mellor’s outrageous demands even as her heart yearns for her sweet, steady boyfriend. Connie reaches out to Cliff to save their relationship but he is too distracted exploring a different sort of temptation—the promise of quick and easy money from the shifty Tommy Dukes. Can Connie stop Cliff before he makes an epic mistake? Can she stop herself before she falls too far to ever come back?


Chatt3Part III: Torn


Surprised by Cliff’s sudden attention, Connie is caught between the life she always wanted and the passion she never knew she needed. Luckily, Connie’s wild, older sister Hillary comes to town to talk some sense into her—don’t throw away your future for a passing fling. But can Connie forgo the ecstasy of Mellors’s touch for a future with Cliff? Will Cliff be too distracted with the IPO to realize what’s at stake?

Chatt4Part IV: Spent


Connie would do anything to repair the damage done by her affair with Mellors and go back to the way things were with Cliff. But with the truth of her betrayal exposed, and Ivy and Dukes exploiting the breakup, Cliff is driven to cast out Connie—and sell out to Silicon Valley. Is it really too late for a happily ever after with Cliff? Connie’s next move could change everything in this shocking finale.

~RELEASE BLITZ~ THE PERFECT DOM by Lucy Felthouse…**Mature(18+) Readers Only**





**Mature readers only,please**

*18+ readers please**

*Some content may be offensive to some readers,so please read accordingly*


The Perfect Dom by Lucy Felthouse

Four kinky and erotic BDSM tales from the smutty pen of Lucy Felthouse.

Balancing the Books
Philip’s a well off man, and doesn’t need a job. But when he sees the gorgeous owner of his local bookshop, he applies for the role that’s being advertised there immediately. He’s totally stricken by the stunning Giovanna, and when it turns out she wants to boss him around in a sexual sense as well as an employment sense, he has no intention of refusing.

Feeling the Heat
Taylor and Maisie’s car has broken down. Luckily, Taylor’s handy with engines and is working hard to get them back on the road. Unfortunately, Maisie is getting annoyed at the amount of time he’s spending in the garage and confronts him. Instead of arguing back, though, Taylor comes up with an ingenious plan to keep Maisie quiet.

The Perfect Dom
Part of Mia’s nightwear is a pair of hotpants with SPANK ME emblazoned across the arse. Normally, that wouldn’t be a problem, but when she forgets that she has a houseguest and heads to the kitchen for a drink, she’s shocked to find Alex in her living room. Immediately spotting what he sees as an invitation written across Mia’s bottom, Alex makes an offer and Mia soon discovers that he is, in fact, the perfect dom.

Meet Me at the Spanish Steps
Darby is working at a holiday camp on the outskirts of Rome and is getting along just fine, with the exception of her sex life. For various reasons, she’s not getting what she wants in the bedroom, and her tastes are very particular. She turns to the Internet to get what she needs, and when she discovers William, it seems that he’s more than willing—and capable—of scratching that particular itch.
