In the wake of the collapse of her father’s business empire, Flor, the gorgeous

twenty-one year-old daughter of disgraced former Brazillionaire Gustavo de Lima, is

forced to forge her own path in life.

Flor decides that none of it—the private jets, the vacation homes and the luxury

cars—were real. Or at least they really didn’t matter. The only thing that’s real for

Flor is her love of horses and her desire to go to veterinary school.

Heading into her final year of college, Flor seeks out the help of an unlikely

benefactor to secure a summer internship working with horses. Arriving at the

secluded Belo Horizonte ranch, Flor is awed not only by the majestic beauty of the

place, but also by handsome cowboy and skilled horse trainer, Collin Taylor. Yet

nothing is quite as it appears on the surface.

When the hidden past is revealed, will love end up blossoming for Flor?

Blossoming Flower - teaser 1.1


Flor throws herself into work the next week, trying her best to forget about

that touch. She does what she can to keep Paco and his inviting eyes at arms’ length

as well. What for? She chides herself. In case Collin accepts her invitation for coffee?

Even she has to laugh at that. But what then?

It’s only ten weeks until she leaves for Smith. Ten weeks isn’t a lot of time,

but when you’re young, it’s certainly long enough to try to get to know someone.

“Are you interested in coming over tonight?” Paco asks Flor as she helps him

sort out semen samples in the lab.

She closes the door to the small fridge and smiles. “To watch a movie?”

He chuckles and removes his gloves. Leaning toward her he says, “I was

thinking along the lines of wine and music. But if you prefer a movie . . . .”

Flor shakes her head.

“No to the movie?” Paco asks, running his hands through his thick hair.

Flor watches, mesmerized by his smooth manner.

“I don’t get it, Flor. One moment, I think you’d like to get to know me, then

the next, you act like you don’t.” He steps toward her. She remains frozen, his gaze

holding her in place, her eyes watching his gorgeous lips move.

What did he just say?

“Usually I can tell when a woman is attracted to me, but you, I get mixed

signals.” He reaches out and runs a finger along the back of her hand.

Nope, not even a flicker of electricity. Flor looks down and doesn’t answer. But

still she’s extremely attracted to him. Her panties are wet, and it’s a struggle to

control her breathing.

The Argentinian draws his long finger up to her chin. “You are incredibly

beautiful, Flor,” he whispers. His face inches closer to hers, his blue/gray eyes

searching hers. He wants permission and a part of her is screaming to give it as

much as it’s screaming for her to leave. She closes her eyes and parts her lips,

knowing it won’t feel right. She wants him to realize it too.

Paco’s lips are as soft as she imagined them to be. He reaches his hand

around her neck and pulls her body to him, his tongue entering and searching for

more. It feels better than Flor even imagined when she lay awake touching herself,

picturing him covering her body with his mouth and tongue.

All of a sudden she’s on fire. Flor reaches up, her hands on either side of his

face. Their kiss deepens as his hands begin to roam, slowly unleashing the desire

she’s felt since she first laid eyes on him.

The kiss feels incredible. He’s truly an expert at reading a woman. His tongue

traces her lips before biting down softly on her bottom lip. The sensation travels

straight down to her sex, pulsing with need. That’s what this is now. Pure,

unadulterated need. He sparked it in her, and now he’s stoking the fire with every

touch, every kiss.

As Paco’s lips travel down her neck, she catches their reflection in the

window. The image of them together with her in his arms, makes her stop. She

wrenches herself out of his embrace.

“I’ve got to go,” she whispers.

Before Paco has a chance to respond, she’s already out the door. When Flor

nears the house, she stops and leans against a large magnolia tree, slides down the

trunk, and hugs her knees to her chest. Flor tries to push the image of her and Paco

out of her head. He’s not the one she wants. It’s Collin.

Why these men and why now? She laments. In the few short weeks she’s been

here, she’s allowed herself to be consumed by longing for one and being pursued by

another. Is this karma? Flor wonders. The moment she determines she doesn’t want

to fall in love or become entangled in anything the universe puts not one, but two

desirable men in her path. Although one doesn’t seem to want her back.

Flor stands slowly, watching bees flit from flower to flower on the low

hanging branches. No one thing or person is worth the energy at this point, she

resolves. She’ll do as she pleases and let the chips fall where they may.

Sky of Dreams, Passionate Hearts book 1

sky of dreamsUsually a writer of wickedly erotic stories that sets fire to the pages, Jenna Jacob takes a step into the genre of contemporary romance with Sky of Dreams, the first in her new Passionate Hearts series. Jacob has blown me away with a heart felt thrilling journey into the hearts and lives of two very damaged people both finding their ways back home. With a full cast of very strong characters you can easily step into the world of Connor, Iowa that Jacob has built. Kaitlin Grant and Sky Whitefeather are combustible when in each other’s presence but it’s the tangible and timeless love for each other that drew me to the story.  The action and suspense kept the story fast paced and impossible to put down. In typical Jenna Jacob style, the story plows into your mind from the first page and takes you on a ride where every one of your emotions is played on until you’ve reached the last page.

For those of you who are fans of Jenna’s other series, don’t fret, even with the contemporary romance tag, you still get a satisfying amount of scenes that will make you bite your lip and wish for a Sky Whitefeather all your own. No one does “steamy” like Jenna Jacob.

I look forward to what Jenna Jacob has in store for the rest of the characters she’s so teasingly left us wondering about. Simply a brilliant piece of work from and amazing author brave enough to step out of the comfort of her normal genre.


Available now at Amazon

Kaitlin Grant lost her spine. She isn’t a slug—but her abusive ex-lover and business partner is. Broken and bruised, she escapes to the safe haven of Connor, Iowa, to resurrect her self-confidence. But Kaitlin doesn’t anticipate the potent electricity still sizzling between her and Sky Whitefeather—the swarthy Native American man she left years ago. Returning home from Iraq with a daughter and an unforgivable secret, Sky tries to bury the past, until Katie—the girl who annihilated his heart, returns to town. The irresistible woman stirs up emotions he longs to forget and rekindles desires that might burn him alive. Can new love grow from the ashes of their past, or will a trail of death and betrayal destroy their dreams?

Instruction (Instruction Trilogy #1) by L.M. Pruitt

51nC8wBAA6L._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_Taylor Allerton is a socialite and party girl, but she has brains. She is the owner of the hottest club around, and she is becoming quite successful.  Needing an accountant, she meets the highly recommended Namir Adeem, who at a young age has moved to the top of a Manhattan accounting firm. Taylor is attracted to the handsome young man who is successful in the corporate world, but inexperienced in the bedroom.  She decides to make him an offer he can’t refuse when she volunteers to be his instructor.

Despite being totally different people, Taylor and Namir have quite the chemistry.  She definitely does not lack in worldly knowledge.  Namir, however, was the studious type. He constantly had his nose in the books in order to graduate early, start a career, and gain his family’s approval.  Partying and dating were never on the agenda. When guided by the sexy Taylor he proves that he is still a committed student.
I know L.M. Pruitt from her Winged series, and became a huge fan.  The Winged series definitely had its steamy moments so writing an erotic romance was not a huge leap. Instruction is sexy, but it has substance. What transpires between the two was meant to be strictly sex, but it is apparent there is potential for something more. I can’t wait to see what happens between them in the next book.



Taylor Allerton’s speakeasy is one of the hottest nightclubs in Manhattan. Young, rich, and beautiful, she can have any man she wants–and usually does.

Namir Adeem just became the youngest partner at one of the most prestigious accounting firms in Manhattan. His determination to bring honor to his family leaves no time for any relationship.

When Taylor discovers just how sheltered Namir is, she takes it upon herself to give him the education he deserves.
Some things can’t be taught in school….

“I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve had to dissuade a woman in a bar.”

He barked out a laugh. “Ms. Allerton, I’ve spent more time in libraries and schoolrooms than in drinking establishments. I’ll confess, if you hadn’t intervened, I’m not sure how I would have handled your friend.”

“Look, I’ve already decided to hire you, so you really don’t need to continue plugging your education.”

“I assure you, that’s not my intention at all.” He coughed and scratched the side of his nose again. “I’m simply trying to inform you, as delicately as possible, that I am not used to this sort of… open culture.”

I stared at him, working to process his words. “I’m sorry, I’m not really following what you’re saying.”

“When I say I lack experience in certain areas, I mean I… lack experience.” He leaned his head back and closed his eyes. “You do not achieve the success I have at my age without making some sacrifices along the way.”

“Oh.” As the full impact of his words sank in, my eyes widened involuntarily. “Oh. Oh, God. Now I’m even more sorry about Kennedy and how she acted and what she said and–.”

“You don’t need to apologize, Ms. Allerton. You have been beyond professional in every way.” He opened his eyes, tilting his chin down and studying me with a slight smile. “At least you have while in my presence.”

“Well, thank God we can’t get in trouble simply for having dirty thoughts.” I crossed my legs and laughed. “Although it’s probably only me having those thoughts.”

He sat silent for long minutes before clearing his throat. “You would be wrong, Ms. Allerton.”

I lifted my brows, tilting my head to the side. “Oh?”

“I hope this won’t impact our professional relationship but since you are being honest, so must I.” His gaze shifted to mine and I sucked in a breath. “I find you very attractive, Ms. Allerton.”

“In the spirit of continued honesty… my friend was right.” I picked up my glass, taking along sip of watered down tea. “I want to fuck you.”

“As flattering as I find your statement, I doubt it would be very good for you, all things considered.”

“Do you want me to teach you?” I hadn’t even known the thought was in my head until the words were echoing in the room but it was instantly an obsession. Slowly, I began sliding around the booth toward him. “I will—as much as you’re willing to learn.”

He dropped his gaze to the table, shifting restlessly. “You should check on your friend.”

“You didn’t answer the question.”

“It was a highly inappropriate question, Ms. Allerton.”

“Still not an answer.” I leaned closer, my mouth a half inch from his. “Do you want me to educate you or not?”

His lips parted on a sigh. “Yes. I do.”

“Wonderful.” I leaned back, pretending not to see the disappointment flash across his face. “We’ll start tomorrow.”

No Prince Charming (Secrets of Stone #1) by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue

no princeClaire Montgomery is on a team that has the task of fixing PR nightmares, and because of his brother’s recklessness Killian Stone is in dire need of their help. When he brings the team into the Stone Global Corporation he doesn’t expect Claire or anyone else to get through the walls he has erected. There is a lot at stake when they both realize they each have secrets that could expose them. .

Claire’s life reminds me a little of Cinderella’s. Her boss is about to become her stepmother. She is unsure of Andrea’s sincerity where the love of her father is concerned. There are no delusions of her future stepsister; Margaux is a manipulator who has a sense of entitlement. Killian Stone is gorgeous and successful.  On the outside it appears he has the world at his feet, but deep down there is something lacking. He lives in fear of his own secret, but something about Claire makes him want something different than the life he is leading.

No Prince Charming is hot; don’t let the title fool you, Killian Stone can be as charming as they come when he wants to be! I loved everything about Claire and Killian. I couldn’t wait to see their story unfold, and I couldn’t put the book down. Payne and Blue will hook you with this sexy, sophisticated, and romantic read. I am ready to see what the couple will face in the already released novel titled No More Masquerade.


“Once upon a time, there was a girl who dressed up and went to a big party at the palace. When she was there, she met a prince. They danced and fell in love…”

Damn good line. Too bad I don’t believe a word of it anymore.

My name is Claire Montgomery…and I’m not a princess. I’m a fighter. I worked hard to earn my place on the emergency image repair team for one of the biggest public relations companies in the country. We’ve been called to the renowned Chicago headquarters of Stone Global Corporation, where it’s our job to clean up a heap of the Stone family’s filthiest laundry. Our success will be the biggest victory of my career. I’m on my game. I’m ready.

Why doesn’t “ready” include a contingency plan for Killian Stone?

My name is Killian Stone…and they call me the “Enigma of Magnificent Mile.” That’s just the way I like it. Elite tycoons want into my bank account. Their wives and daughters want into my pants. They’ll all do anything for a piece of the enigma—until a crack in the castle is too huge for anyone to ignore. What they all don’t know is that I’m thrilled about the fissure. Their fascination with the scandal means nobody will look at the bigger secret of the Stone family. I’m safe.

Until Claire Montgomery walks through my doors.
Her honesty, her bravery, her humor…they pull me in, a prism against the gray walls of my tower. I’m captivated. For the very first time, I long to shed the enigma. To share my secret. But what the hell will that get me? Even if she fits the slipper I offer…I’m no Prince Charming.

The Dahlia Trilogy (The Gilded Flower Series, Books 4-6) by Vivian Winslow

dalia trilogyDahlia’s twin sister Lily has found love. It seems Dahlia is on track for her own happily ever after too, but she failed to think of the past that could come back to haunt her.

Dahlia is a socialite who has some major issues. I think she’s learned a couple of things in her short life; money can’t fix everything, and it’s really unfortunate you can’t choose your parents. Dahlia strikes me as a character that has her fair share of fun, and rebellion, but is trying really hard to grow up.

Winslow’s Gilded Flower Series are a group of erotic novellas.  There is more to them than sex, though there is plenty of heat, there is an actual story that is full of emotion. Her characters show the darker side of being born into a prominent family. I felt bad for Dahlia’s character because it is obvious she is starved for love, but it just seems to elude her.
You do not have to read Lily’s Trilogy to read Dahlia’s story; it can stand alone. However, there are returning characters and I recommend reading the previous stories first. Winslow leaves us with a bit of a cliffhanger as to where Dahlia’s future is going and how it is going to intersect with her friend Vi’s. I am looking forward to learning what happens next.



Blue Dahlia (Book 1) – New York socialite Dahlia Baron is falling for her Latin lover, Rodrigo Cruz, the scion of the Mama Linda Latin foods empire, and hopes to take the relationship to the next level. But there’s a dark secret that she must deal with first in order to truly give her heart to him. When Dahlia visits the man from her past, will the undercurrents of her emotions let her go to Rodrigo or will they pull her back to the one person who stands between them?

Black Dahlia (Book 2) – Grieving from a tragic loss, a deeply depressed Dahlia retreats with her sister Lily and best friend Vi to a sun-soaked Indonesian paradise to heal. There, she meets soulful surfer Kai, who’s seeking to escape from the demons of his own past. Can the spiritual and physical connection between them put back together the pieces of Dahlia’s shattered heart?
Red Dahlia (Book 3) – Having discovered her mother’s and Shane’s devastating betrayal, a determined Dahlia seeks to find what was taken from her and to chart a new life for herself. With the help of Vi’s friend, Englishman Thomas Squires, a dashing and enigmatic clandestine operative, Dahlia chases leads across London and Paris. Will Dahlia be able to right the wrong and allow herself to love again?

Disheveled Teaser 3


Clap clap clap

Ruby was trying to get our attention, letting us know that the show was about to start. What show, you ask? The kind that had us drooling and imagining filthy activities in the privacy of our bedrooms. Well, except for Em, she just wrote it for the world to read about and enjoy.

With a collective sigh, we all turned to the room-length mahogany bar and made ourselves comfortable. Enter Raùl. That’s right. The highlight of our week was the hunk of Cuban man serving drinks just for us. I thought I heard Emmeline moan, Ava’s hand had mysteriously disappeared beneath the table, and I was pretty sure drool was easing out of the corners of my mouth. I instinctively brought my hand to my parted lips and wiped off my imaginary dribble. With a year round tan that came only from perfect genes, hair black as night, and a smile that made women drop their panties and spread their legs, Raùl mixed, shook, and poured the ingredients for our traditional margaritas. Cue in the porn music, right there. As always, he knew exactly what each of us drank, our favorite flavors, and just the right amount of alcohol to keep us steady on our designer stilettos. Every time he topped off a glass, he looked over at the destined party and flashed his orgasm-inducing smile. Cue in sparkle for his teeth, right there. “God, what I wouldn’t do to ride that train, right about now.” Those words were supposed to stay in my head, but of course they spilled from between my lips like running diarrhea.

“Well, unless you have an eight inch dick hidden between those gorgeous thighs of yours, babe, this is about as close as you’re getting to the station.” Fucking Buzz-Kill-Bethany.

The Red King by Kate Hill

the red kingDelia was raised in a convent and ready to take her vows when her father promised her hand in marriage to Areus, the King of Lortia. Areus needs control of her father’s army to defeat a man known as the Mad Prince who is a threat to not only his kingdom, but other small and vulnerable kingdoms as well.  Delia and Areus know that this is a marriage of necessity to save their kingdoms and link them by  producing an heir. Neither expect they will find a love match.

Delia is a strong willed woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She doesn’t want to be like her mother who is a shrinking violet under her father’s rule. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to stand up to Areus. Areus is everything a warrior king should be; he is strong, smart, and he puts his people first. He may appear intimidating, but he is a fair ruler.

Hill’s The Red King has many things going for it; it is a blend of romance, erotica, historical, with a dash of fantasy. It also had it’s share of excitement and danger. Delia and Areus get off on the wrong foot, and I enjoyed seeing them work to understand each other. I also liked Hill’s use of imagery, as a reader you are cast back in time and could actually envision yourself living in Lortia. As if these things weren’t enough Hill manages to throw a couple of surprising twists in as well. I hope to see more from Kate Hill in the very near future.



Part of the Knights of the Ruby Order series.

Torn from her beloved convent home, Delia is forced to marry Areus of Lortia. The contract states she must deliver an heir within a year or the marriage can be annulled. Delia vows to control her fate by ensuring there will be no child—until she is mesmerized by Areus, the proud, virile warrior king.

Areus agrees to marry Delia to gain her father’s army to continue his fight against Hypatios, the mad prince of Zaltana. He doesn’t expect to fall in love with a convent-reared mouse, but from the first, Delia rouses his lust and touches his heart.
Their life together hangs in the balance as the war with Zaltana advances and Areus discovers Hypatios is far more than just his sworn enemy.

Proposing to Preston (The Winslow Brothers #2) by Katy Regnery

proposing to prestonPreston Winslow became enamored with Elise Klassan the moment he set eyes on her in an off Broadway play. A very, very bad play. Elise Klassan just wanted to be a Broadway actress. She was a young woman who wanted to leave her life on the farm to see her name in lights. Preston steals her heart, but the timing couldn’t be worse.

Preston and Elise have more in common that meets the eye. While it’s true they come from different worlds they are both romantics at heart, and they are both goal oriented people. The problem lies in merging their lives together and realizing that love is hard work and compromise.

Proposing to Preston is a contemporary romance, and the second novel in the Winslow Brothers series. If you are a reader that craves a good love story Regnery will give that to you. I enjoyed Preston and Elise’s story. There were plenty of twists and turns. I do have to confess there were a couple of times I wanted to give Elise a good shake and tell her to open her eyes already!

I  am looking forward to seeing more of the Winslows when Crazy about Cameron releases in September.



Preston Winslow has a heart as open as the sky and room in his life for someone special. When he falls in love with Broadway actress, Elise Klassan, he holds nothing back.

Elise, who has made tremendous sacrifices to forward her career, is swept off her feet by handsome, charming Preston…but the stage has been her first love for so many years, she doesn’t know if there’s room for Preston in her life. When the day comes that she must choose between her ambition and her heart, she profoundly hurts the one man who could have made her happy.
Two years later, Elise has become a world-famous actress and Preston is a very successful lawyer. But fame has not equaled happiness for Elise, and Preston is much too bitter and cynical to ever consider falling in love again.

Has Joel finally met his match?

This is a follow up novella to the first five short stories in The Panty Whisperer serial.

Have you ever been pushed to the edge, and then over it? Have you ever had your toes cramp and your head shoot to the sky, trying to log every touch, every feeling in your memory, to reenact every situation later in the shower, or underneath your cool bed sheets? Have you ever had someone own your mind, penetrating every single one of your sexual fantasies, unable to shake free of them?

The thought of me will be a thirst you can’t quench, an itch you just can’t scratch, a drug that you cannot have. Every time you run your fingers down over your body, longing for that unattainable feeling I gave you, that warm sensation shooting into your toes, that complete surrender of all inhibition, aching for me to have you just one more time, I’ll be there, inside your mind…

My name is Joel Hannover and I am the panty whisperer. Some men are good at business, some gifted at mathematics–I’m good at making women come, hard. It’s a gift I’ve possessed my entire life. If there was a girl nobody could bed, I was the first to get there. I always get there. I work as an accounting software consultant. That’s a fancy way of saying I’m a salesman. Accounting departments are full of women, dressed conservatively, presumed to live boring, mundane lives. Nothing could be further from the truth. These women are unique, sexual creatures, yearning for someone to take them to their breaking point and beyond.

How will Joel cope with Quinn’s rejection?  You’ll have to read to find out…
