Gotta ReRead! One Wicked Night by Shayla Black (writing as Shelley Bradley)

I’m ending this awesome book year with a story I fell in love with instantly a long while ago, and I re-read faithfully a couple times a year. I have a strange fascination and a giddy compulsion to read this erotic historical romance over and over. Just the title alone drew me in, and then as I read, each page and each chapter captivated me and still does. When all the mystery, danger and deception reached a breathtaking crescendo, I was obsessed, totally and completely.

OneWickedNight_ShelleyBradley.PNG

One Wicked Night by Shayla Black, writing as Shelley Bradley, is one of those stories that is not only unputdownable but extremely romantic. I absolutely love everything about this story. It has every element of its genre, a few sub-genres wound in that I love to read about, and it’s even a bit taboo! Amazing is too small an expletive, but it is so original, sexy and engaging.

Lady Serena Boyce is a married woman, and her husband is a Duke. All her life she’s prayed for a peaceful home, a kind husband and a house full of children. Only now her much older husband is unable to make love, never mind make a baby that they both desperately need and want. The Duke needs an heir as soon as possible and if he can’t conceive a child upon Serena then he has just the solution ... Only the god-fearing Serena can’t imagine having an affair with a total stranger, committing adultery, just so they can save the Duke’s estates from a horrible nephew inheriting ... but fate has intervened when Serena is rescued from an assault by a handsome, irresistible and compelling Marquess, and willingly melts in his arms for the first time in her sheltered life.

The Marquess Of Daneridge, Lucien Clayborne faced with another lonely night, drinking away his pain and sorrows, or seduce the angelic damsel that he just rescued from a robber. She is mysterious, beguiling and beautiful. The best part of their accidental encounter is the fact that she’s stranded and he is her only way home, with a slight detour to his residence ... Lucien needs her arms and her warmth for comfort, for solace and for an escape ... just one night. One wicked night. He’s been burned and scorned by his ex-wife and has no intention of ever trusting a woman again. But this one powerful night with this enchanting woman has Lucien on a collision course with a new destiny and a second chance at redemption ... If he can just find out who she is first.

I think these two characters, Serena and Lucien are one of the most memorable couples I have ever read about, they are one of my most favorite hero and heroine in an erotic romance. Lucien and Serena are complicated complex characters and I love how they meet. How they become mystery lovers then inconvenient enemies. When a secret unexpected surprise brings them together, the adversity binds them and exposes their true hearts. They both have had so many disappointments and disillusions in their pasts about what they thought love was, that leads them to question all the heartache and desperation. So when destiny throws them together on that clandestine stormy, rainy night, their world’s are turned upside down irrevocably ... and one wicked secret night will last a lifetime.

Serena Boyce’s pious upbringing had so many strict ideals forced upon her that she’s trying to live up to, and trying so hard to be perfect. She wants to be the perfect Duchess, the perfect wife and a perfect woman of society because her family’s past is so scandalous. Lucien Clayborne is a man who’s always in control, and always in a position of power, but when his life falls apart as he watches all that he loves slip away, Lucien becomes regretful, bitter, angry, jaded and distrustful of all women, but mostly he questions of his own sanity and judgement.

When Serena and Lucien are together it is pure magnetic passion. I really enjoy their angsty struggles, how they fight their deep desires and lusty emotions, how they war within themselves and with each other at every turn. But what’s really overwhelming and addicting is the magnificent sexual chemistry, the true love connection between Serena and Lucian that cannot be denied no matter what troubles cross their paths. I love this story because it has the dangerous mystery, some sweet surprises and a whole lot of hot, sexy romance that just melts my heart and makes my heart race every time I read this book ... it’s just soooo good!

So thank you everyone for a great year of romance reading, and goodbye 2017, it was a fantabulous book year ... and hello 2018, I can’t wait to read all the new sexy romance that will be coming my way!

Gotta ReRead! Nauti Dreams by Lora Leigh

Achingly Heartwarming! Nauti Dreams by Lora Leigh is suspense-fully romantic! I love how this author creates her perfectly imperfect worlds of romance, intrigue, and angst in this Nauti Series, beautifully depicting all the natures of war, pain, and suffering in every form and the strength of the human spirit to overcome it all, physically and emotionally.

Heart pounding and heart melting all in one extremely exciting, thrilling, and sensually sexy, suspense story!

loraleigh_nautidreams.PNG

Natches MacKay is my favorite veteran of the three cousins who served in the military in this fantastic series. He’s so gorgeous, so flirty, while also quiet, disciplined, and an isolated loner. Natches has had nothing but hard times since birth, and now only expects the worst at every turn. Each day is one more day living in PTSD hell not only from being a sniper in the war but also from his horrible childhood. Nothing gives him a moments peace from his nightmares and daymares .... until he reflects on one fateful night in the desert. A brave, stubborn, amazing woman needs his help to escape her interrogation torture, and Natches sees his future flash before his eyes. Chaya Greta Dane may be the damsel he rescued, but she’s the one who rescued his heart that night, and Natches is now on a mission to return the favor. Years later, every time Chaya comes to town, she continually ignites Natches passion ... only on this visit, Chaya will be his for good.

Chaya Dane is the toughest character I’ve ever read. Her sacrifice and bravery totally awed me and I especially love that nothing about her unassuming, plain character is the typical or expected heroine in an erotic romance. She thought she had the perfect life: a wonderful husband, an adorable child and a dangerous job for military intelligence. When she took a routine assignment to the Middle East, Chaya thought she’d be back home in a few days. Unfortunately shit hit the proverbial fan, she was captured and tortured in the most violently unimaginable ways. Come to find out her tormentors were in cahoots with her two-faced double-crossing husband and it cost her everything and everyone she holds most dear ... But a mysterious flirty rescuer motivates Chaya to run, to live and to exact revenge with his unbelievably deep sexy voice and his breathtaking kisses in the middle of a sandpit hiding from enemies. Her heart is all in, her body wants Natches more than air, but she pushes him away for his own sake with two words guaranteed to cool off his jet, “I’m married” ... Now years later, how many second chances can a girl get with a guy like Natches?

I think I love reading this story over and over because it has so many excruciatingly passionate, love-denied moments that just make me swoon. Both characters are so ultimately good inside, but so extremely broken outside. Unselfish and self-sacrificing should be their middle names. Chaya and Natches don’t feel worthy of each other or deserving of a second chance at life or love. Both are riddled with pain and guilt, brimming with the need for revenge. But their chemistry, wow, it’s explosive and addictive ... I just find myself rooting for Chaya and Natches to call a truce, quit their schemes, and finally just be together ... it’s one of the most amazingly frustrating and heatedly heart-melting stories I’ve ever read!

I’ve been reading all of this author’s books for over a decade, and each series, each genre, each romance just gets better and hotter ... Lora Leigh is an absolute one-click must-read author for me, so go give her books a try!

 

Gotta ReRead!! Predator’s Kiss, Gemini Island Shifters 1 by Rosanna Leo

Love Shape-Shifter Romance? Well, this one is as exciting and romantic as a paranormal bear shifter romance can get! Predator’s Kiss by Rosanna Leo is terrific reading! Magical, fantastical, and sexy beyond all my expectations in this wonderful story of finding one’s true mate when you least expect to ... Talk about a Bear Hug in a book!

predatorskiss_rosannaleo.PNG

 

Rosanna Leo writes with such heart! Her characters are funny, clever, good, and feel so real. The story-line is really romantic and easy to follow, but so engaging and endearing as well. There’s never a dull moment! All the sexy scenes are done so great, emotionally sweet, but very sensual ... I love that it’s so hot and steamy! It’s just what an erotic paranormal romance should be!

Isn’t it amazing when the ordinary girl-next-door gets the super hot alpha-manly man of her dreams who inspires and lights her up in all sorts of ways? Only this unusual man is way more than she bargained for.

Lia Goodblood is running from a sick stalker and runs right into an island full of mysterious happenings and strange people that she only thought were in fairy tales. She writes erotic romance books with crazy plot twists, but never in all her imaginations would Lia have ever dreamed she’d end up in the middle of her very own Goldilocks story. But what a sexy story it is when the big, burly man of your dreams, Ryland Snow gets his alpha sexy yummy bear paws on you and claims you as his mate for life.

“A bear will make a low moaning sound if it’s giving off a mild warning. In courtship, it will huff.”
He kicked off his boots, yanked off his socks, and then pulled off his jeans and tossed them onto the couch.
“And if it growls?” she asked, unable to tear her gaze away from his bared skin. Ryland offered her a crooked smile, and the sensuous curl of his lips made him appear more playful than she’d ever seen him.
“Oh, if a bear growls, you know you’re in trouble.”

Ryland Snow is a bear Shifter, resigned to be alone and running his resort on Gemini Island. He has been burned by human women too many times in his past and has no intention to relive that kind of trouble again, but there’s just something irresistibly special about Lia Goodblood that sings to his inner bear beast. All his resistance is futile when she’s threatened, assaulted and in danger of being killed on his island. Now all Ryland can think of is claiming his
mate, taking his mate, protecting his mate and making Lia his forever.

“Ryland leaned over and covered her mouth in his as the animal inside him fought for release. Lia didn’t fight it either; she clutched at him, winding her arms around his neck. He was careful not to hurt her wounded arm, but held her tight, so tightly she was lifted from the floor and her feet dangled under her. With every taste, with every sensual glide of their tongues, the need to make her his grew. Ryland reeled, feeling more at the mercy of his beastly instincts than he ever had before. This wasn’t just carnal lust. This wasn’t simply the need for a fuck. Something had reached inside him and scrawled Lia’s name on every part of him that mattered. Mate bond. As they fell apart on a breath, he knew it was useless to fight. He would make her his.”

Predator’s Kiss is a must get-must read! It’s fun, flirty and fantastic!

Thank you again, Rosanna, for writing this book and I am so excited to read all the other books in this Gemini Island Shifters Series!

Gotta ReRead! Seven Years To Sin by Sylvia Day

I am absolutely, positively obsessed with Sylvia Day’s inspiring regency romances ... so obsessed! Seven Years To Sin is undoubtedly one of the best historical romances I've ever read! Truly Extraordinary!

I am madly in love with Alistair Caulfield. Madly! Every single thing about him is devastatingly delicious! All that he endures and suffers through is so admirable and maddeningly heroic, but it's his unyielding, unapologetic passion for Jessica that is magically spellbinding! Alistair is truly the stuff of every woman’s fantasies!

This story grips my heart like no other.

I honestly read and reread this book many times a year, actually every year since it was released. I can't ever get enough! Maybe it's the dreamy longing they have for each other when they were young. Maybe it's the fortuitous fate that brings them together seven years later. Maybe it's the way Alistair lives his life knowing and believing that he will be united with Jessica someday, no matter how long he must wait,
even if it's a lifetime. Maybe it's the insatiable, erotic passion that draws them together and pulls at their hearts. Maybe it's how they are so amazing on the outside, by all appearances, but so imperfect and so broken on the inside. Maybe it's just how they are so right together, and so good for each other in every way.  Whatever the reason that I'm irrevocably addicted to their story, and there's too many to count, I love this book with every ounce of my being!

Lady Tarley, Jessica Sheffield Sinclair is undeniably perfect ... statuesque, refined, educated and beautiful, but at a great personal cost. She's betrothed, a match made by her father, but one that she accepts as her duty. Her husband is by all accounts a good, kind and handsome man, but Jess wants more ... a man who will treat her like a wife in public and a mistress in the bedroom.

One chance encounter in the gardens at dawn shows her what she truly craves, what she desperately desires and that's in the sapphire bright, mesmerizing gaze of Alistair Caulfield as he commands her to stay to watch his indiscretions in the gazebo. Jess’s life changed forever on that night ... she’s left a big secret part of her soul with that handsome rake.

Years later, now a widow, and set adrift to the sea of money hungry Lords, she desires to be independent, useful and knowledgeable in the ways of business. Jess sets sail for her property in Jamaica to start her new life, but never dreamed she'd find the one man who still haunts her heart and fuels her passionate dreams every night.

Alistair Caulfield has always been woefully underestimated in all aspects of his life. He’s the fourth born bastard son to a very wealthy Lord, that has been his mother’s painful secret all his life, but he is the one who has paid for it dearly. Everything he has accomplished, bought, and achieved is all on his own merits.

Since he was born with exceptional good looks and legendarily endowed, he has used all the gifts bestowed upon him to make the ladies of the ton very satisfied ... for a price. He is a man who will do anything, say anything, and take any wager to achieve wealth, prosperity and the love of his life, Jessica Sheffield Sinclair, the recently widowed Lady Tarley. But the fates are playing a joke on Alistair ... he is now involuntarily thrust into the society he detests and must now play a role to appease his mother, the family line and The Ton, but at what unimaginable sacrifice.

Jessica and Alistair have a fiery clandestine romance on the ship to Jamaica, but wading the murky, judgmental waters of the ton society is whole new level of polite games and deceptive politics as both Jessica and Alistair come to grips with the intensity of their fierce love for each other and the harsh realities of how they can be together forever. Many obligations stand in their way, but nothing will ever cool their ardor ... Can they trust their love is strong enough to weather the storms ahead?

Brilliant story, Brilliant characters and Brilliant feels on every single page!!

Most people know Sylvia Day’s books from her contemporary series, but even if you don't think you'd like Regency Romance, give this book a shot ... I promise it will be worth every minute you spend in it fully engaged, absorbed and emotionally invested in Jessica and Alistair’s memorable story!

Now, let me just add ... If, and that's a big IF, Sylvia Day ever, ever reads this post ... I would love to leave this heartfelt pleading sentiment ...

Please, please, please write a sequel to this book!! I need to know more!

I desperately want to know how Jessica’s sister, Hester and the wonderful Michael Sinclair get their HEA, and I would love, love, love to see Jessica and Alistair get their “miracle” when they take their belated second honeymoon to Jamaica.
Maybe it can be called “Seven Years To Heal” and it can be half Jessica's future story and half Hester’s love affair ... pretty please?! I really really love Jessica and Alistair, so much, and I would love to see them get everything they've ever dreamed of!

Ok ... now that that's out of my system, hahaha ...

I can't recommend this book highly enough or give it too many stars ... so to all of you romance readers who love to fall in love with the hero, Alistair Caulfield is phenomenal, a cut above ... as heart-melting as he is panty-melting!!

It's such an amazing read!!

 

 

Gotta Re-Read! Glimmer by Beth Kery

Would you succumb to Dylan Fall?  Will Alice?
Glints of mystery and flashes of lust fill each page in the intensely seductive story, Glimmer by Beth Kery.
Such a great read! I was equally haunted and hooked all the way through!
There's a lot more to Alice Reed than she seems, more than she even knows ... and there's so much more to Dylan Fall than first meets the eye.

Beth Kery’s amazing writing lights up her characters Alice and Dylan and their blazing chemistry with a scintillating secluded setting and layers of addictive plot twists.

Dylan Fall is not just a reclusive CEO, but a loyal, generous man with a big philanthropic heart who had a rough childhood and now he pays it forward.

Alice Reed is more than her college degrees and horrible family ties would imply. She's guarded, intelligent and feels like an outsider, but she's also kind, determined and driven to be a great mentor to underprivileged kids.

The story slowly elevates the strange happenings as it exposes Alice and Dylan's painful pasts and present anxieties, hinting at a glowing future someday. This romance made my heart beat excitedly but eerily heavy for Dylan and Alice’s unconventional relationship, as they grapple to just find love in a sparkling clandestine affair wrought with taboo desires and shadowy secrets that will change their lives forever ... Could Dylan Fall be Alice's knight in shining armor, and the man to slay her dragons?

I am over-the-moon happy with how the story is totally unexpected and unpredictable, only giving me glimmers of spooky clues, keeping me guessing and on edge from cover to cover. Plus, all the bondage love making was sensually erotic and beautifully portrayed with wonderful tenderness ... just so gooood!

Dylan Fall’s commanding needs for control in all aspects of his life is intoxicating while Alice Reed’s mistrust and insecurities fuels her desire for surrender, but only in the bedroom. I really felt their spark and connection, their shared obsession and their desperate need to be needed ... truly an emotionally charged and salaciously sexy story.

“You feel like sin straight up,” - Dylan

The word “glimmer” by definition is: a faint or wavering light; a dim perception. This story feels just like that ... a glimmer, a glimpse into the mysterious man and his addiction to all things Alice Reed ... It's a bright flash into an irresistible attraction between Dylan and Alice, that only shines intermittently in the dark stillness of the night. To Alice, Dylan is like a far-off glittery star, secretly and seductively drawing Alice’s eye. But also like a shimmering mist, he envelopes and protects her, making her last remaining hopes twinkle to life.

“God, the man knew how to fuck.” Alice

Each time with Dylan is an overwhelming adventure, and Alice knows that whatever is happening to her with this attentive, enigmatic man in their secret late night play times ... the clock is ticking. All this may be confusing, may be exhilarating, may even be a bit scary but it also may be her heart’s demise by the end of the six-week executives camp at his luxurious estate. She only has uneasy feelings and dim, fleeting flickers into who Dylan Fall really is and what he may be really capable of.

“You're a miracle to me. I wanted to tell you the second I saw you. So much.” - Dylan

Glimmer is part one of Alice and Dylan's story, it is enthralling and edgy, addictive and fresh, with many layers of gripping mystery ... A very different erotic romance with powerfully sensitive D/s scenes and emotionally vulnerable characters that really touched me. In the end, it's not really a cliffhanger but not really a total HEA either ... it's just enough to keep me wanting more!

Beth Kery never disappoints with her thrillingly engaging plots and her sensually erotic romances! Her stories make all my senses go crazy and I love being in her book worlds!
I'll always be in complete awe of her work and I can't wait to start the second part of this duet, Glow!

Gotta Re-Read!! Craving (Steel Brothers One) by Helen Hardt

Extreme Emotions!
Seduction and secrets surround Talon Steel, and only one woman can penetrate his armored heart.

Craving is part one of Talon’s three part story in the Steel Brothers series by Helen Hardt. This book is so so much more than I ever expected and her writing is absolutely amazing!

Talon is the one of the bravest, sexiest, most tortured heroes that I've ever read! It's emotional, exciting and engaging. Heart breaking, heart-wrenching and heart-flustering on every single page! Brilliantly bold and salaciously sensual, Talon’s story took me on such a winding, twisted ride through many dark tunnels, only to finally see shadowy glimpses of Talon’s turmoil ... with one hell of a cliffhanger! I can only hope to see some light shine through as Jade and Talon’s struggle continues in the next two books, Obsession and Possession.

Talon Steel has many painful secrets. Many emotional walls. Many dark needs. He protected his country, protected his family, and now protects his heart ... but one unique woman is getting under his skin, unraveling all his defenses, one enticing thread at a time, and Talon can't resist his cravings for her body, for her heart and for her smile. Jade Roberts will be a insatiable desire he will never be able to quench and a love he fears he will never deserve. A horrific childhood trauma taunts him, haunts him, and Talon has no future with Jade until he confronts his devastating past.

“I'll never love you." ...
"You’ve made that clear. What you haven't made clear is why you want me."
"Because I crave you. I crave your lips, your tongue, your body pressed against mine. I crave your sweet little pussy, your lips wrapped around my cock. I want to take you, own you, possess you for a night. I want to fuck you and fuck you and fuck you until neither of us can take it anymore."
His eyes glowed, his dark nipples hardened and his erection was apparent underneath his pajama pants.
“I'm so hard for you right now, like granite. And maybe, Jade, maybe if I fuck you and take you, I'll get this goddamn craving out of my system.”

Jade Roberts is embarking on a new life, a new career and a new image of the woman she thought she should be and now focuses of the woman she dreams to be. Taking her best friend up on her offer to live in Colorado to lick her wounds, and get her bearings, Jade lusts for the one man she always felt was unattainable ... Talon Steel is gorgeous, broody, and sex personified ... he revs up all her girly parts like no other. So this is what it feels like to be a wanted woman, deliciously desired by this troubled, guarded, taciturn man, and who’s slowly becoming her obsession. The more Talon Steel’s mixed messages push her away, the more she’s drawn to him, craves him ... Now if she can just keep herself from melting into nothingness every time he kisses her ... but it's too late, in-spite of vowing to never lose her heart to this man who could never love her back ... Talon already owns her, heart and soul.

“He unclenched his fingers from my shoulders and trailed one hand up my neck to cup my cheek. And I was lost. I could never resist a face toucher. I loved the feeling of being so treasured by someone ... I was in heaven, floating on a magical cloud. The kiss was still deep, and I returned it passionately, but it was soft now, almost ... loving.”

This book took my breath away! I cried and sobbed so hard for Talon all the way through ... and Jade, so sweet and so caring, making some pretty hard decisions trying to help, was just so agonizing! So much suspenseful intrigue and so many nightmarish flashbacks ... bone-chilling!
(Take note: this series comes with warnings ... so please take that into consideration before you read)

This is a series that I am completely addicted to and will stick with me forever ... Talon’s rough realizations and brave recovery is such an awe-inspiring journey!
I can't wait to re-read Obsession and Possession to finish Jade and Talon’s rocky road to HEA!

Gotta Re-Read! Man Candy by Melanie Harlow

Holy Epic Hotness! Awesome RomCom!! Amazing Angst!
I love love love reading Man Candy by Melanie Harlow over and over!!
Hysterical and Hot! Quinn and Jaime sizzle all the sexy right off the pages!

“All I’d wanted was a little man candy, and he was offering me an entire meal.” - Jaime

Such a great “If you love something set it free” romance!

I adored how this story really gets to the heart of Jaime’s fears about forgiveness, love and commitment … but I really loved how Quinn backed away and had so much trusting faith that Jaime would see him for more than just the “friends with benefits” good time … It's over the top freakin Quinntastic!!

“Quinn Rusek could be my someone. He could. It didn’t have to mean that I was wrong about everlasting love being a myth—it could just mean I was willing to take a chance on getting closer to someone ... I just had to figure out how to let him without losing my bearings … or my heart.” - Jaime

Jaime Owens is a wild whirlwind of angst! She is the true definition of an independent in charge woman. She loves men and she loves all the play with none of the pay … and she has all her unbreakable, steadfast rules to prove it. No one will ever penetrate her thick emotional walls or break her heart … again. Especially not Quinn Rusek. He had his chance years ago, and now she will show him all he's been missing. Just friends with sexy benefits … no strings, no messy lovey dovey heart gooiness to mess up her life … it's just too bad for her she's still absolutely addicted to Quinn and now obsessed with his bod too.

"I couldn’t help it. There it was, right in front of me, the Dick that Got Away. And it was big and hard and thick. It was one of those pretty ones, too, know what I mean? One of those tall, symmetrical ones planted in a manscaped yard? Figured that Quinn would have a perfect dick. It was probably magical too.” - Jaime

Quinn’s life isn't all that it seems. Sure he's a soon to be retired hot model, and yes, he has loads of Instagram followers from his panty melting selfies and he has dreams to start a new path for his life, but now he also has his best friend’s sister living upstairs. The one he felt was forbidden. The one he always wanted but never thought he could have. The woman who makes him dream of forever and family. The one person whose known him forever and still lights him up when he sees her … After all these years, this Jaime has attitude, walls, and her guards up … well, challenge accepted miss “I have rules” … and aren't rules made to be broken? Let the sexy games to prove to Jamie love does exist begin … with him.

"What the fuck was the world coming to when a guy finally wanted to talk about feelings with a woman and she said no? And why on earth had I bet her I could make her believe in love? What the hell was I going to do or say or show her to convince her it was real? … she’d given me little tastes of its sweetness in between all the teasing and rulestating—like the chewy, gooey center in a hard candy lollipop. I grinned. Maybe I just had to lick my way to it." - Quinn

This is one of the funniest, most romantic, and best erotic romances I have ever read! Great feels, great sexiness and great characters! Stellar Reading! I am totally in love with this book and I can never get enough of Quinn!! Best Book Boyfriend Ever!

Melanie Harlow writes some of the most amazing-total-turn-on sex scenes I've ever fanned myself in a book over … so beyond the WOW! Man Candy seriously gets five kindle melting stars from me every time!

Gotta Re-Read! Wild Card by Lora Leigh

When I'm reading this book, it takes over my life and that's perfectly fine by me ... Wild Card by Lora Leigh is as amazing and fantastic as a sexy contemporary military romance can get!!!

Wild Card is my automatic go-to-books to read over and over when I'm in the mood for an angsty hero, a top-notch ugly cry, a ton of nail-biting adventure and a buttload of panty-melting hot sexiness! The writing is magical, moving and mind-blowing! I mean, just look at the picture ... my poor paperback looks so well used up and lovingly abused after nine years and so many times rereading it ... And I'm All-In at the prologues, every single time ...

"You have the Irish eyes, boy. One of these days you'll see from eyes not your own, feel with a heart outside your chest. Wild Irish eyes, Nathan. When you love, love well and love true, and take care, lad, because those Irish eyes are windows into not just your own soul, but the soul of the one you love ... And when you lose your heart, you can't leave the places where your memories are best ... Don't lose the one you love. You lose a part of your soul when you do. The legacy of those eyes will ensure it."

This one book. A thousand feels ... I have a book shaped imprint on my heart from this book, it's absolutely unforgettable. I've never had a book stick with me like this story does. No matter how many times I read it, my heart hurts. My eyes tear all up just thinking about it, even more so cause I know what's coming, and then I get all wound up over all the insanely crazy choices Nathan makes because he thinks he's doing the right thing. I loved how all the desire and passion brought Nathan and Bella so close physically, the addictive sexual chemistry comes off them in waves ... but deep down do they really know each other or are they just loving strangers playing house, afraid to be their true selves?

His sacrifice ... Nathan Malone thought he knew what it would cost signing up in the Navy meant, until he had a simple rescue mission go tits up haywire and it put his life and future on the line. Nathan had it all. Everything his heart and body desired all wrapped up in one perfect woman. Only he took all that for granted, assumed his life would always be a fun thrill ride, an adrenaline rush, not the PTSD nightmare of a stranger that looked back at him in the mirror now.

"Go siorai," he wihispered, breathing in the scent of those memories. "Forever, Sabella. I'll love you forever." - Nathan

He didn't believe all the Irish folktales of a soul binding connection with your one true love, so Nathan had one last decision ... accept his fate, get out of the Navy Seals and go home to face his perfect wife, or let the damaged man known as Nathan Malone die and start a new life as Noah Blake, Elite Ops. Could he be brave enough to live without the love of his life, and spare her this uncontrollable monster? But his Irish eyes saw all, felt all, haunted all, night and day, driving him to go back to the only place he had ever known peace ... his wife's arms. His true north. Only now, she's in the middle of a dangerous mission threatening his home town and she thinks her husband is dead.

"Today he would step back into her life as another man. A man whose hungers were so dark, ran so deep, that sometimes they made him pause. A renegade. A wild card. He would come to her, not as Nathan Malone, but as Noah Blake. And he would come into her life as nothing she could ever imagine." - Noah

Her courage. Sabella Malone was a pampered princess, but way tougher than she looks. She thought she was worshipped by her husband and beloved by the whole community, but now the Rose colored glasses are off. She never thought that Nathan needed to know what she was truly about ... he wanted a girly girl, the perfect wife. But when Bella's world imploded and turned inside out when a knock on the door told her Nathan was dead. Never coming home. She died inside right along with him. Life as she knew it was over. Bella did only what she needed to do to keep Nathan's memory alive, but she was numb inside, haunted with nightmares and visions of seeing through Nathan's eyes and all of his torment. How was she going to live without her soul? How can he really be dead when she feels him, needs him, loves him and her dreams feel so alive?

"I'll love you forever, witch." He leaned over her, naked, his chest gleaming, golden flesh blocking out the sun as his brilliant neon eyes watched her intently. "Feel my soul touch yours, Sabella. Feel me love you baby ..." - Nathan

Nathan was gone. Forever. Now with the garage in trouble, Bella sees the new mechanic hired walking through the bay doors ... she knows that walk. Her heart skips a beat. Her breathe stops. Nathan? No. Can't be. Nathan's dead. Dead six long, years. But this man, Noah Blake, stirs her soul, draws her in, and whispers to her heart. There's some major eye-fucking going on, her body calls out for his ... could she move on from Nathan, could she forgive herself, by starting a new life with Noah? ... but it's his eyes, those haunting wild eyes, are making her want Nathan, but needing Noah and confusing the hell out of her heart ... Her husband is lost, but can he ever be found?

"I have nightmares," she whispered as he tucked her against his chest.
"I know, baby." He undid her braid, worked her hair loose.
"I see blood," she told him.
"My hands are covered in blood. And you're crouched in front of me. You are. Then Nathan is. Then you. Then Nathan is drifting away and you're still there. And suddenly I'm you, and the pain is so bad. And all I feel is you thinking about me. Begging me to save you as I dance in front of you and tempt you to take me. But it's not me. And it's so frightening, Noah."
He flinched. God, she had seen into that hell ...
"I didn't save him," she murmured as she slipped off to sleep.
"He begged me to save him, and I couldn't." ...
"You saved him," he whispered into her hair. She had no idea how she has saved him ...
"I missed you, Irish." -Bella

Gotta Re-Read!! Tart (A Delicious Novel) by Lauren Dane

Beautifully Done! I'm amazed each and every time I read Tart (A Delicious Novel) by Lauren Dane!

This story is sensual, moving, and so darn loving! Tart absolutely lives up to the title ... it's delicious! Tart is not just a super hot ménage romance, it's a crazy complicated, emotionally messy, love-fest too!

I adore how all of my favorite characters from her other books in this series are popped in, making me smile, and I really love how nothing is how it appears between Juliet, Cal, and Gideon as the bumpy road to happily ever after takes a big twisty turn into the ménage unknown ... Can the three of them together really make this love thing work?

Gideon Carter is a cowboy on a mission. Divorced, and back to manage his grandfather's farm, he's decided to stay in his old home town permanently, and just so happens to meet up with the most vivacious young woman he ever laid eyes on ... Juliet Lamprey has sure grown up to be a whole lot of beautiful sexy, and he wants all that all over him with a red hot passion. One kiss and he knows this is the woman he's meant to be with for the rest of his life. Only one problem ... Cal Whaley wants her, and just so happens Cal wants Gideon too. Now what kind of strange love triangle did he get himself into ... maybe the best kind?


"I'm hungry for you Jules." He took a deep breath and stepped back. "I'm hungry for you and it aches."
He bent and took a kiss, this
one more bold than the last. His tongue slid in, against hers and then he was gone again.
"I want to enjoy that ache for awhile." - Gideon


Cal Whaley has it all ... a great family, a prosperous law firm, and all the boys or girls he can get his mouth on. Cal is not a manwhore, just a serial monogamist ... one hottie at a time, but there's always a time limit. Nothing serious for this workaholic, and definitely not long term ... Cal still hopes deep down, he can have Juliet as more than friends, but that one kiss all those years ago showed him loud and clear, Juliet is the one, but he's just never been ready to cross that line ... but something's changed with Juliet lately and that change has a name, Gideon Carter. Now has Cal lost his chance with Juliet ... or does he really want Gideon in his bed. Can he have both?


"What. Was. That?"
He licked his lips and began to pace the alley.
"That was a kiss, Juliet."
"No duh. I've seen you kiss lots of other people enough to know. But why me? Why now? What's wrong?"
He threw his hands up in the air. "What's wrong? What's wrong is that you taste so fucking good I'll never forget it."
He continued to pace, shoving his fingers through his hair, disheveling it ...
"I'm tired, Jules. Tired of telling myself I don't want you when everyone on the planet knows it's a lie. I do want you. I'm tired of seeing you with another man when I wanted you first." - Cal


Juliet Lamprey is exuberant, generous, and totally honest ... a very "call it like she sees it" kinda woman. She has a really successful bakery, lots of friends, and a disheveled family but she makes it all work in her extremely busy life. She's never met a stranger, Juliet's only had one "love of her life" experience and that's with her now best friend, Cal, who gave her one mind blowing a kiss at fifteen, then when off to college. Never happened again. She is firmly in the friend zone and sits by watching Cal go through guys and girls like he changes boxers, so Juliet has made up her mind to quit pining, and she meets the perfect man to move on with, Gideon. A walking talking sex machine in a cowboy hat has just moved back to town, and Juliet is putting her claim in. Only now Cal is acting jealous. Is he jealous that's she's seeing him seriously or is he jealous cause Cal wants Gideon? Oh God!


"As it happens, I like cock too."
Cal threw his hands up in the air and Jules grabbed her bag.
"Nice one," Cal hissed as he followed her out the door.
"Wait, why are you leaving?"
She spun.
"I can't do this. I ... I can't always wonder if he's in it for me, or for you. Or if you are. I just ..."
She tried to keep walking but Gideon moved in front of her, taking her arms.
Cal moved him over.
"Baby its you. Always and only you." ...
Fuck. Now Gideon got it.
"He's right. Stop thinking, even for a moment, that if it was a choice I'd do anything but choose you. What I'm proposing is that we share you ... I want to be with you and if that means sharing you with Cal, I'm willing to try it. And yes, in the interests of full disclosure, I enjoy men."
"I have to think." - Juliet

Gotta Re-Read! A Breath of Heaven, El Camino Real #1 by Sable Hunter

Save a horse a ride and this cocksure cowboy cutie!!

Wow, Sable Hunter sure can bring the hot heat and the sugary sweet in this super sexy romance! All the lust, longings, and love I could ever want in a western contemporary romance, all wrapped up in one huge hunk of strapping cowboy and his fiery hard-to-get fantasy-girl!

Cade is a rodeo star coming home with only one thing on his mind ... to get the girl he's been dreaming of his whole life. Abby is just as determined to keep pushing Cade away, guarding her secrets and her heart.

This story is pure angsty fun banter and sweet sexual tension on every page!! I love reading A Breath of Heaven over and over ... there's never a dull moment between these two from the first page to the very last!! Fah-mazing!!

Cade Tallbull is all burly, handsome, cocky man and pure cowboy through and through. Sadly, a really tough break growing up only leads him to the biggest blessing a homeless kid could ever dream about ... an honest to goodness loving family. The Kings were not just generous and kind, with five boys around Cade's age that called him brother, they also have one sweet, feisty, little sister too, Abilene Grace ... Now all Cade's gotta do is wait for his perfect angel to grow up so they can be together forever. Unfortunately, everything has changed when Cade gets back from a rodeo one Christmas, and his Abby is spitting fire and as cuddly as a rattlesnake ... What the hell!! But Cade is a man with a plan, he's waited ten years too long to make her his, so it's time to get this wild filly all hot and bothered with all his magical pelvic sorcery ... and he ain't take 'n no for an answer ... not anymore.

“I bet I could make you tremble, Abilene. Do you remember that one sweet kiss we shared all those years ago? You sure enjoyed it. I can still remember how you whimpered and clung to me, pressing those sweet tits of yours into my chest.”

Abby stiffened, the memory almost hurt more than she could bear.
“The kiss was a mistake, a terrible mistake.”
He could never know the truth—never. Still bracketing Abby’s body, he let his eyes rove over her face, trying to read her emotions.

“No, you’re wrong. The kiss was amazing.”

Abby Grace King is now all grown and a veterinarian to boot, but she still only has eyes for Cade like it's that first moment he jumped out of her daddy's truck, a struck her all blushy-tongue-tied ... there is no sexier or finer looking man in the whole state of Texas, bar none, as far as she's concerned, but one tragic accident changes everything forever. She'll always have that one perfect kiss to remember Cade by, but now she's not worthy of him. Best just to be mean, rude and snappy for the last ten years, than to let Cade see how imperfect she really is ... if only she could have just one night. One dreamy, magical night to show Cade how much she loves him ...

"It was like their first kiss. Abby wanted to drink it in. Memorize it, indelibly record it in the annals of her mind.
She sighed when his lips finally reached hers, a breathless sound that rose unbidden, whispering from her lips. A moment before their lips touched, Cade’s eyes opened and met hers, she reassured him the best way she knew how–by closing the distance and pressing her lips firmly again his.
Cade groaned and reveled in the feel of her soft lips brushing against his. He caught her closer, sweeping his tongue across the seam of her mouth. She opened to him, inviting him in without reservation. His tongue dipped into her mouth and tangled with hers. Cade drew her even tighter and let out a small gasp of air into Abby’s mouth, which she accepted as if he was breathing life into her body.
And perhaps he was. A breath of heaven, that’s what this was –a mingling of their souls."

Gahhhhh! This is soooo heart-melting all the way through!!! You're gonna love it! Promise!

Gotta Re-Read!! Bliss by Opal Carew

About six years ago, I was taking my weekly bookstore stroll, overwhelmed by all those new-book-smell endorphins, when I picked up Bliss by Opal Carew. I thought to myself as I eyed this sexy book cover, "Hmmm, Bliss. Now doesn't that sound just wonderful..." and it really was! This was the very first book I had ever read by Opal Carew and it stole my heart! Fantasies can come true!!

Everything about this erotic romance drew me in, making me buy it at once ... the very sensual cover pic, the red colored background, the back blurb, and especially the title, Bliss ... "It's better than pleasure, it's Bliss" ... now that sounded so incredibly irresistible! I mean, come on, who wouldn't want pure bliss?

Bliss is not only a love story about two exceptional and exciting characters on the sexy road to happiness, but it has so many intriguing scenes to learn and experience like it's a Tantra sex-ed book ... absolutely amazing!! I loved learning about something so fascinating and new to me just as the main heroine, Kara, enjoyed trying, while also reading about the spark of true passion that sets J.M. and Kara's life on fire.  Love at first sight has never been hotter!

Kara Spencer, a sex columnist with very little experience in sex, is forced to go to a sex convention to interview a Tantra master/ sex author for her magazine. As part of her research, she decides to experiment with a few of the flirting skills she's been researching with a gorgeous man she's sitting near in the airport ... only it works too well! Kara's not only having the first one-night stand of her life when there's a layover delay, she's having the absolute best sex of her life with J.M.

But no one falls in love at first sight, do they?

J.M. Smith, aka Jeremy Smith, author and sex master, has fallen instantly and irrevocably in love, as a beautifully flushed brunette flies by him in the airport, and he knows ... She's his perfect woman. All of his positive affirmations has worked, and now all he has to do is to convince his beauty that their amazing nights together, exploring all the wonders of Tantric sex was beyond special ... it's their destiny. It's too bad she doesn't believe in love at first sight, so now it's up to him to prove it ... it's a good thing the fates are smiling on him right now, Kara is not only at the same convention, but she's the journalist interviewing him for her article ... now if only he was a master at matters of her heart as well as he was a master of her body ...

A bargain is reached, a time limit set, and no sexual fantasy is off limits, as Kara and J.M. follow their desires and their hearts to discover lasting love ...

If any of you have never explored all the erotic wonders that are Opal's books ... you are missing out!! Not only are the stories fantastically romantic but so inspirational and educational is all things sexy ... so push away all your boundaries and follow your bliss!

 ** No books were harmed in the making of this book pic ... it's not really water on a beach, but this cover does remind me of one of my favorite classic romance movies!

Gotta ReRead! Rush, Book One of The Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks

Maya Banks is a romance writing goddess! I devour all of her books over and over and over, never ever getting enough of her charismatic characters and sensational storytelling! Some of the best BDSM Bookgasm reads ever!

The Breathless Trilogy is addictive! Every single moment in the first book, Rush left me literally breathless, panting, and gasping in awe from the rad reading rush the story takes me on! The pure raw, beautiful passion is almost overwhelming and absolutely absorbing on every single page!

Rush will pull you in ... tantalizing you, teasing you, and tormenting you with this May-December clandestine love affair that seems doomed from the start ... secret contracts to do secret deeds, and secretly falling in love ... seriously sexy!

More than just a billionaire falling for the forbidden girl, this story oozes desire and scintillating need from a very unlikely couple ... Mia Crestwell is so much younger than Gabe. She's so innocent, so exuberant, so perfect and his business partner's/best friend's little sister. Gabe's bastard soul and hard heart craves control in all things, and he has edgy, libidinous needs that no woman has ever fully satisfied ... until Mia kneels before him and makes all his dark fantasies come to life, the way he's been dreaming of her seemingly forever ...

"Gabe," she whispered, his name like a moan.
... His finger slid inside her and she moaned again. His thumb applied more pressure, moving in a circular motion as his finger stroked deeper. Then he nipped at her breast, grazing his teeth over the puckered edge ...
"Come for me Mia," Gabe said. "I want to feel you come in my hand."
His finger slid deeper, pressing against her G-spot. She gasped as his thumb pressed over her clit and he sucked her nipple into his mouth once more. She closed her eyes and cried out his name as the first waved crashed over her ...
"That's right. My name, Mia. Say it again. I want to hear it."
"Gabe," she breathed.
- Mia

Mia has wanted Gabe Hamilton practically her whole life ... if only he didn't look at her like a little girl, his best friend's little sister, but as the grown woman who wants him and loves him above everything else ... even if it means she must learn to love him they way he needs to be loved ... secretly, submissively and unrequited ... until Gabe destroys it all.

"There's no hope for me with you, Mia. I make you promises I can't keep. I'm not myself when I'm with you. I'm not even sure I like myself right now. But I can't stop. God, even if it makes you hate me, I can't stop. I won't stop. My need for you consumes me and it's not going away." - Gabe

I can not sing this book enough praises! It's one of those stories that makes me tingly in all the naughty places and leaves me begging for more ... You want this book!! Go get some Gabe!
