The Truth About Leo by Katie MacAlister

Leo is the seventh Earl of March and a spy for the king. Dagmar is a Danish princess who has lost everything and is living in poverty. When her companion finds Leo severely wounded in her garden she marries him thinking that he won’t survive and insuring that she will have passage to England. Leo survives and comes out of his fever a married man, and his new wife is unlike anyone he has ever met.

Both characters are quirky in their own way as are the rest of the book’s characters. Leo is charming and intelligent, but he is also a man with a sense of humor and he is quite passionate as well. Dagmar is the opposite of what you would think a princess to be. She doesn’t hold anything back; she says what is on her mind and is full of questions whether it is proper or not. Leo and Dagmar are actually quite compatible.

I have read MacAlister’s paranormal books, but this is the first of her regency novels I have read. I was so happy to see that she kept with her style of writing although it was in a different genre. She kept her trademark humor and witty banter, and I found myself laughing out loud more than once. The Truth about Leo is a very unique regency romance, and I will certainly be giving the fifth book in the Noble series a try.


Publication Date: August 5, 2014

The much-anticipated, brand-new Regency romance from New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister.

Can Dagmar flee Denmark

Dagmar Marie Sophie is a poverty-stricken Danish princess whose annoying royal cousin is about to have her stuffed away in a convent. When she finds a wounded man unconscious in her garden, she sees a way out of her desperate situation.

By Lying to Leo?

Leopold Ernst George Mortimer, seventh earl of March, and spy in the service of the king, finds himself on the wrong end of a saber and left for dead. He wakes up not remembering what happened…in the care of a beautiful woman who says she is his wife.

Back in London, Leo-with the help of his old friends the eccentric Britton family-sets out to unravel what he’s forgotten… Is Dagmar truly the wonderful, irrepressible woman who makes his heart sing, or is she a dangerous enigma bent on his destruction?

Spotlight & Giveaway: Own by Katie Porter

Hello Readers! On August 26th award winning author Katie Porter will release OWN, the first book in her new erotic romance Command Force Alpha series. This is an incredibly sexy book, featuring a military hero, pushes the boundaries of what it means to be a Dominant and submissive.


Title: Own

Author: Katie Porter

Release Date: August 26, 2014

Genre: Erotica


When a mission against the Russian mafia goes south, Colonel Stafford, head of a deep-cover ops team, wrests a hospital-bed promise from his protégé. Although eager to return to the field, Evan Sommers swears to keep the colonel’s daughter, Katsu, safe from retaliation.

The task isn’t simple for the battle-tested Marine Corps captain. Four years have passed since his secret affair with sweet, compliant Katsu. Now she’s a streetwise pool shark who refuses to obey any command.

Kat resists the need for Evan’s protective shadow, until deadly threats expose her vulnerability. Her future depends on this hardened soldier, and their sizzling dynamic reveals what Kat’s bland college dating life lacked—a man with the will and desire to tame her.

Danger creates potent, unexpected scenarios that test their sexual limits, yet a real relationship is impossible. Evan is the warrior who could be her Master, but how can she fully submit? The next mission—even the next knock on the door—could rob Kat of the man she loves.

One day he’d find peace here.


Like the kind he’d found, so briefly, when Katsu had knelt before him. When she’d bowed her head. When she’d obeyed his commands — not just to the letter, but with such alm, orderly precision. Watching had been hypnotic…and so sexy that had she defied him, stood up and stripped naked, he wouldn’t haven turn on. Sure. Of course he would’ve. But he also would’ve been disappointed. He admired her strength, lived with equal parts admiration and frustration when it came to her stubborn streak, and knew she was one of the whip-crack smartest people he’d ever met. To have that strength humbled was not about bringing her down, but about giving them both a moment of tranquility.

Control and obedience.

Dominance and submission.

Easy tugged down the covers and gestured for Jenna to get in. She chose the side that would allow her to lie on the uninjured side of her face.

“After what you’ve been through, I don’t want to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable,” Easy said.

Propping herself on an elbow, Jenna shook her head. “You won’t. You’re the—” She blanched as if she hadn’t meant to say whatever she’d nearly said.

Which made Easy need to know. He crawled on the bed as if lured by the words. “Finish. That. Sentence.”

She eased back onto the pillow, red hair sprawling around her shoulders like silk, and stared up at him. And it took everything Easy had not to settle himself on top of her and tease the words out with his hands and tongue.

“The only one who makes me feel safe,” she whispered.

Satisfaction humming through him, Easy turned and stretched out on his back. Because if he kept looking at her while she was looking at him like that, he might not be able to restrain himself from having what he wanted. A taste. A chance.

None of which she was in any shape for. And given the shitstorm in his head, probably neither was he.

“Good. That’s good,” he murmured, blowing out a long breath. Damn, he was tired. Not just because he hadn’t slept much the night before. But because of the size of the load he’d been shouldering for the past twelve-plus months. If he could only figure out how to put it down. He scrubbed his hands over his face, wishing he could shake himself out of this fucking slump.

If Rimes were here, he’d kick Easy’s ass for being such a morose motherfucker.

But he wasn’t here. Which was the damn problem in a nutshell.

He dropped his arms to the bed and peered over at Jenna.

She lay on her side facing him, hand tucked under her chin, not looking the least bit settled or relaxed.

“Whatchu need?”

“You.” She spoke the word without any hesitation, any doubt, any seeming self-consciousness.

“Have me, Jenna. Whatever you want,” he said, his cock stirring no matter how hard he reined himself in.

Holding his gaze, she moved closer until her head rested on his shoulder and her body trapped his arm between them. And, suddenly, she wasn’t fucking close enough.

“Here,” he whispered, lifting his arm and inviting her closer. And damn if his heart didn’t soar when she fitted herself the rest of the way against him, her face against his throat, her breasts against his ribs, her leg curling up onto his thigh.

He wasn’t sure whose sigh was louder. All Easy knew was that this was the first time in more than a year he didn’t feel alone. Wrapping his arm around her, he couldn’t resist squeezing her in just a little closer.

“Thank you,” she whispered, her breath ticklish against his neck.

He laced his fingers between hers where they rested on his chest. “I gotchu. You just close your eyes and know I’m here.”

About Hard To Hold On To:

Edward “Easy” Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves—which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna’s the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago.

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can’t describe how he makes her feel–and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

Entwined by Gladys Quintal

Entwined is a coming of age story that centers on Adelaide Stone. Addie has insecurities and major self-image issues. She is very intelligent, and thinks of herself as plain and nerdy. She has been crazy about her best friend’s brother Holt since kindergarten, but she feels like he has never really seen her. When her best friend Janine invites Addie to share an apartment with her and Holt after graduation Addie is over the moon. Maybe things will change for her now. Maybe she can work towards her new career and just maybe the young man she has pined for practically her whole life will finally notice her.

Addie is a young woman who is very relatable. I believe at one time or another we have all been plagued with self-doubt and poor body image. Adelaide has no clue how beautiful she is on the inside and outside. Janine is a beautiful girl who is oblivious to the guy’s attentions. I love how she believes in her best friend when Addie doesn’t believe in herself. Holt is the young man every parent would want their daughter with. He is ambitious, caring, and protective. He obviously has feelings for Addie, but he has built up a wall between them. All Addie wants to know is why he treats her differently than he did before.

I admire the way Quintal writes what is in her heart. She isn’t afraid to cross genres to tell the stories that need to be told. Although this is a coming of age novel about a new and blossoming romance her characters have real life problems. I thought Entwined was a beautiful story that held a lot of emotion and had its fair amount of suspense too! There are some sex and adult situations in the book, but it is a perfect story for the high school or college aged reader. I never know what to expect from Quintal, I can’t wait to see where her journey takes us next.


Publication Date: September 15, 2014

Mastering the Marquess by Lavinia Kent

Lady Brookingston married the man she had loved since they were children. John came back from war injured and the marriage was never consummated. Now John is gone, and she is widowed without ever having lost her virginity. Time has passed and she wants to remarry, but does not want her husband’s memory sullied over the fact he was unable to perform in the marital bed.  She makes her way to a discreet Madame to ensure that her virginity is taken before she moves on with her new life. The Madame sets her up with the Marquess of Swanston, a man who loves control and obedience. Louisa experiences a night of passion she never thought possible with Geoffrey. It was only supposed to be for one night, but fate can be a fascinating thing.

In a time when marriage and sex was done not as pleasure, but to produce heirs, everything Louisa had heard about sex made it sound like a painful yet necessary chore. Louisa was a character who started as extremely naïve, and it was compelling to watch the change Geoffrey brought about in her. Geoffrey came from a family who never took life very seriously. He was forced to grow up quickly, and take care of family affairs and finances. He needed structure and control to thrive, and he never got that at home. When he became a man he used domination in the bedroom to meet those needs. He may have seemed dull to people in London society, but behind closed doors he is all alpha male!

Most regency novels I have read have scenes that were risqué for the times, but Mastering the Marquess is by far the most erotic I have ever encountered. It is definitely the first regency I have read that involved domination and bondage, and I was left thinking there should be a lot more of it.  I am a fairly new fan of regency novels, and of course I love erotica, I can’t help but wonder how I missed Kent’s work!  Her writing is sultry, and her portrayal of London society was everything I expected and more. This story was so much more than bondage and ball gowns; there was a real story there.  The characters had barriers to cross, and had to learn about each other as well as themselves.  I cannot wait to see more from Kent, and seeing how this is only the first book in the Bound and Determined series I am already on the edge of my seat wanting more!


Publication Date: July 29, 2014

One night of fierce passion and unbound pleasure leaves two strangers craving much more in Lavinia Kent’s sumptuous novel of sensual discovery.

The time has come for the widow Louisa, Lady Brookingston, to move on, but she refuses to remarry at the cost of shaming her late husband’s memory. Their six years together were wedded bliss—even if a war injury prevented him from fulfilling his marital duties. Only one woman can help Louisa: Madame Rouge, the discreet proprietress of a club where London’s elite explore their wildest fantasies.

Geoffrey, the Marquess of Swanston, has no intention of agreeing to deflower an anonymous virgin. But when Madame Rouge tempts him with the absolute power he’ll have over a woman who knows nothing of carnal delights, he’s intrigued. Control is the one thing he cannot resist—and control is what he loses during his night with the blindfolded beauty. He longs to take her further, to leave his mark upon her perfect behind, but the mystery woman refuses to see him again. Instead Geoffrey reluctantly agrees to take a wife, the widow of his dear friend, Lord Brookingston—fating them both to a wicked surprise.

Nightlord Lover by Kathy Kulig

Larissa wants to make a fresh start in New Hope. She got a great deal on a shop and apartment and is excited to be opening her new business. Larissa realizes New Hope isn’t what it seems. When she meets her sexy Landlord Garrick, and his friend Ramon, she is forced to believe in something she never imagined to be real.

Larissa is a strong independent woman who knows she can make it on her own. She is excited to start a new life and a successful business. Garrick is a vampire, and he wants Larissa as his Crimson Swan, a lover and blood donor, from the second he lays eyes on her. Garrick is sexy, and his demeanor is serious and protective. Ramon is a vampire with abilities as a sorcerer. He seems the opposite of Garrick. Like Garrick, Ramon is gorgeous and protective, but his demeanor is more laid back and flirtatious. It is no wonder Larissa is attracted to both men! Other interesting characters include, Jordan, a college student who works for Larissa; and Bastian who is the leader of the vampire guild. I would love to see these two characters get their own story.
Nightlord Lover is an erotic paranormal that involves a very steamy ménage between Larissa, Garrick, and Ramon. It is apparent both men are in love with Larissa, and Larissa is in love with Garrick. What bothered me was Ramon’s role, is he a good friend with benefits? I wish Kulig would have slightly altered the relationship dynamic, because by the end Ramon just seemed like a third wheel. The town of New Hope reminded me of Salem’s Lot or Morganville, only it is much more erotic with its Crimson Swans. Vampire politics are at play, which gives the story the edge it needs to be exciting. All in all I enjoyed Kulig’s story. She combined my two favorite genres, paranormal and erotica, into one dark, dangerous, and delicious page turner. I would rate it 3.5 stars.


Publication Date: July 23, 2014

Warrior vampire Garrick Labar guards the secrets of the Guild. His comrade— vampire and sorcerer Ramon Travere—enforces the uneasy alliance between mortals and immortals. When Larissa Devine moves into town, both Garrick and Ramon are mesmerized and enraptured by her. They crave to claim her as their crimson swan and lover. But a new arrival is fair game and if they don’t claim her first, a band of renegades will.

Larissa finds a blistering-hot ménage with her protectors too intoxicating to resist. The immortals can’t deny their sexual attraction for her and sense her blood pulsing hot and furious whenever they are close. Erotic desires thrust her into a world of danger and seduction. When the renegade vampires attempt to destroy a hundred years of peace, Larissa is caught in the crossfire. Eternal love and carnal nights can be her future if she survives.

Risqué Reunion by Rayne Bexley, Aurora Black, Harper Jewel, Oliver Lixx, Ava Snow, & Cleo Taurus

Amanda O’Connell is excited for a weekend with her old college roommates.  Her husband Liam dotes on his wife, and is thrilled by the way she keeps it spicy in the bedroom. The ladies decide to act on the curiosity they shared in college, and Liam is invited to play along. The only thing that could possibly get in the way of this erotic weekend is their nosy neighbor Alexis.

Amanda is almost like the den mother of the ladies. She is the one they all turn to for comfort.  Raylin is the sexy Nubian Goddess, Charlotte is the mischievous one, Diana is the Domme, Alexis is the nosy neighbor who seems to enjoy Amanda and Liam’s sex life from afar,  and Liam is the man who gets the best of all of them.

Risqué Reunion is a very erotic story that will get your blood pumping. There is sex, sex, and more sex. The authors were very good with their collaboration; it is quite obvious they work well together.  I thoroughly enjoyed this short romp. The ending felt like it left me hanging though, and it makes me wonder if we have seen the last of these characters.

If you like your stories smoking hot, I would suggest you give Risqué Reunion a try. A word of warning this read is definitely blush worthy so keep that in mind before you read it on the bus during your morning commute!


Publication Date: July 25, 2014

When four long-time friends, former college roommates who went their separate ways after graduation, decide that texts, phone calls, and weekly Skype conversations are no longer enough, they all agree a weekend get-together is in order. An invitation by the only married one in their quartet is extended, and the plans begin. As the women prepare for their no-holds barred visit to the O’Connell home, each one recalls their sexual fantasies with the group—some realized, some not, some that just barely touched the edge of the erotic vision. Even the lone male in the group recalls his prior interaction with the three soon-to-be-arriving guests. With anticipation and arousals ignited, they are all looking forward to their Risqué Reunion. But none of them are prepared for the O’Connell’s nosy neighbor. Will the voyeur next door ruin all their fun, or will they find a way to make the weekend better than any of them ever expected?
