Guest Post: Tara Sue Me on Keeping Characters Fresh

The Exhibitionist Tara Sue Me

When readers asked for more Nathaniel and Abby after The Training was published, I was hesitant. After all, I’d ended the book with their happily ever after. I even gave a brief glimpse into their lives a few years down the road with the Epilogue. What else was there to tell?

But the more I thought about it, the more I saw that there was so much more to tell. If you think about it, two people coming together, whether that be through marriage or not, is really just the beginning.  Their story of overcoming obstacles to find love is such a tiny portion of who they are as a couple. Real life is what happens after the vows and while, let’s face it, no one wants to read about washing dishes, or doing laundry, there are a lot things that are worth reading about.

Guest Post: “A Writer’s Journey” by Desiree Holt

Wolf Moon Desiree Holt

I think that I wanted to be a writer for my entire life. When my children were young I loved making up stories for them. I could hardly wait for the opportunity to put those words down on paper and create something of substance. Unfortunately life got in the way, and beyond work and raising a family my dream got stuffed in the closet until I finally retired. Even then it too four more years before I was able to actually begin to write.

Now, you’d think since I’d been dreaming about this for so long that the writing would be easy, right? Wrong! Oh, I even had an outline for my story, a murder mystery. No, not a romance. Not then. Why? Because growing up my mother and my sister only read mysteries while I was growing up so I sort of followed in their footsteps. I enjoyed reading, them, really, and could hardly wait until I had the time to write one of my own.

Guest Post: “Four Authors of Erotic SciFi Romance” by Veronica Scott

In the mood to read a book that combines supernova-hot erotic elements with a futuristic plot?

Today I’m highlighting a few authors who deliver just that in their scifi. Between them, these ladies deploy everything, from BDSM and femdom to spanking and menage in their intergalactic adventures. Definitely not for the under 18 crowd!

Under By Treaty Kayla Stonor
Kayla Stonor:  Her Qui Treaty Collection is an autobuy for me. Under By Treaty is the first volume in the series and got me completely hooked on Ms. Stonor and the Qui-human relations. There’s a human alpha hero in the first book, General Jaden, sacrificed by his own people for the greater good, given up as a prisoner as the book opens. A sexy alien shapeshifter who may or may not be trying to save Earth from destruction by her own people is his captor.  Intergalactic politics laced with domination, submission and devotion influence Jaden’s fate among  the aliens. Several major plot twists occur to keep the action moving nicely. The science fiction worldbuilding is well-handled and I definitely bought into the romance that develops between Jaden and the very alien heroine.

Guest Post: Adventures of a Bad Boy With Callum Hughes from HIS KIND OF TROUBLE by Terri L. Austin

His Kind of Trouble Terri L. Austin

Hello there, my name is Callum Hughes. Though originally from the UK, I spent my life kicking around the globe, seeing new places and falling in love along the way. Mostly with vintage European sports cars, though trust me, women didn’t escape my notice. Have you ever been to Rio during Carnival? Quite an experience, to say the least. The ladies, the parties…well, decadent is one word for it.

Anyway, I’ve developed something of a reputation as a car restoration expert, but really, I just love bringing these works of art back to their former automotive glory. I take pride in my work, but I find it hard to stay in one place for long. Unless I’m obsessing over something like a ’54 Alfa Romeo B.A.T., I enjoy traveling. A lot.

Exclusive Excerpt

Exclusive Excerpt: THE QUEEN by Tiffany Reisz

The Queen Tiffany Reisz

Today The Queen, the final book in the Original Sinners White Years by Tiffany Reisz is out! This is a fantastic series that I enjoy and Tiffany’s writing is fantastic! (If you haven’t read the series, you should start with The Siren, which is book one of the Red Years and on sale for $1.99!) We’ve got an exclusive excerpt for you from The Queen, and hope you enjoy!


Once upon a time, Nora and Søren made a fateful deal—if he gave her everything, she would give him forever. 

The time has finally come to keep their promises. 

Out of money and out of options after her year-long exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, the most feared Dominatrix in the Underground.

While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, her only love and the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice—will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go, or trade in her crown for Søren’s collar?

With a shattering final confession, the last link in the chain is forged in The Original Sinners saga. It’s the closing chapter in a story of salvation, sacrifice and the multitude of scars we collect in the name of ecstasy—and love.


Kingsley caressed her cheek with the back of his fingers.

He narrowed his eyes at her, his expression inscrutable.

“What? What is it?” she asked.

Fire Inside Kristen Ashley

This deal alert for Kristen Ashley’s Fire Inside is at a perfect time. On Tuesday the newest book in the Chaos series, Walk Through Fire, hits shelves! Kristen’s heroes are usually taciturn and dirtily sexy, and Hop, from Fire Inside, definitely fits that description!

Here’s the blurb to entice you to pick up a copy today!


Lanie Heron isn’t looking for love-no surprise, considering her last serious relationship nearly got her killed. So when Lanie propositions Hop Kincaid, all she wants is one wild night with the hot-as-hell biker who patrols with the Chaos Motorcycle Club…

For Hop, Lanie has always been untouchable. She’s too polished and too classy for his taste. But when she gives Hop the once-over with her bedroom eyes and offers him a night in paradise, he can’t say no. And he doesn’t regret it when he finds that Lanie is the best thing that’s ever happened to him-in or out of bed. Now the trick will be to convince her of that.

Deal Alert: Lavinia Kent and Desiree Holt!

This is a deal alert TWICE as good as usual! TWO very hot sexy titles are on sale for a limited time. First, there’s Desiree Holt’s Forward Pass, the first book in the Game On series:

Get Ready to Play Rough

Shay Beckham grew up idolizing her brother’s best friend, star quarterback Joe Reilly. There was no one in their Texas town who had the moves to match Joe on or off the field. Years later, he’s still a player who has what it takes to drive any hot-blooded woman wild. But Shay isn’t a kid with a bad case of hero-worship anymore. She’s grown-up and independent, with her feet on the ground and a serious head on her shoulders. If she could just say the same for Joe.

It’s been fifteen years, but Joe Reilly hasn’t forgotten the skinny little kid who used to follow him around like a shadow. What he can’t get over is that the skinny shadow has grown into one hell of an incredible woman. One any man in his right mind would kill to get his hands on. And one who seems to be completely immune to him. He knows he and Shay could have something special together. If he could only convince her he’s about more than just the game.

And then Lavinia Kent’s erotic historical Bound by Bliss, the second book in her Bound and Determined series:

Lady Bliss Danser, daughter of the Duke of Mirth, is a scandal waiting to erupt. Which is why her highly conventional brother wants to saddle her with Stephan Perth, Earl of Duldon, the only man he thinks will marry her. Worse, Stephan keeps threatening to punish her, to teach her just how a woman should behave. His words may cause Bliss to tingle in the strangest places, but that doesn’t mean she likes the man himself.

Stephan has secretly desired Bliss for years, but he knows how close he is to losing his beloved. Careful not to rile her impetuous heart, he promises only to aid Bliss in her search for another fiancé. And if she’s determined to understand the male body first, he’s happy to comply in that regard as well. However, she must follow his rules or face the consequences. Slowly he takes Bliss to the darker, steamier side of his world . . . where she realizes that Stephan is everything she’s ever wanted.

We’re not sure how long the deal lasts, so snap it up now.

Amy Jo Cousins’s Bend or Break Series

AJ-Cousins-Off-Campus
Amy Jo Cousins’s first book in her Bend or Break series

What I’m most passionate about in my reading of romance now is diversity. I actively search stories that highlight and reflect the diversity in the world — ethnic, social, sexual, physical, etc. And one of the romance series that explores this diversity in a most profound and engaging manner is the Bend or Break series by Amy Jo Cousins.

This is a series of four novels so far, with another full-length novel and a sequel novella coming out soon. They are mostly m/m romances, although the third book, The Girl Next Door, features a m/f couple though the woman is actually bisexual (and there is a super hot m/f/m threesome as well) , so the series can be summed up as diverse queer romance.

It all begins with Tom and Reese in Off Campus — a New Adult college romance that explores serious social issues. Tom’s dad is in prison after committing a Ponzi scheme, so Tom’s is a fall-from-grace situation, and now he’s struggling to stay in college. This story also explores the consequences of being a victim of sexual assault (Reese) and how it affects and changes a person. At the same time it’s a story of self-discovery (Tom is coming to understand that he actually likes both girls and guys) and coming out. One of the main strengths of the series is the way Amy Jo portrays so realistically young, college-age people, with all the confusion and urgency and exuberance of youth. The characters make mistakes, there is miscommunication and some wrong and hasty assumptions made, yet I find them fitting to the young age of the boys and part of their journey into adulthood.
