Bruno:

I gave up everything for her, and she never even knew it. When I saved her from the mafia, I traded my freedom for hers. I’ve never regretted it. Never looked back. I cut her out of my life to keep her safe.

I did everything I could to protect her from the retribution of the Italian Mafia, but it wasn’t enough. They’re after her again, and all that’s standing between her and the darkest fate imaginable is me.

Serena:

It’s scary the things you can close your eyes to. Even after I was rescued from men who wanted to do the worst things to me, I went on with my life. I forgot all about the threats of the mafia, about what they forced me to do, and even the man who saved me from them.

But now, my hero has returned, and just in a nick of time. Because the mafia is coming for me, and this time, I don’t know if we’re going to get out of this alive.

Excerpt:

The orange afternoon sun is on my back when I bring my car to a stop about a block away from the well-to-do little store on the corner of the street. When I turn my ignition off, I lean back and just stare at it, letting out a deep breath.

How long has it been?

The light playing off the glass window panes make it impossible to see inside the shop, but the sign outside is clear as ever: Bathing Beauty. I feel a smile on my face. As many mixed memories as it stirs up in me, there’s something comforting about knowing it’s still there, unchanged as ever. Maybe even a little nicer.

All thanks to her.

I catch a glimpse of myself in the car mirror. I’ve changed so much over the years. It feels like a lifetime ago that I was just a teenager, freshly landed in America. I kept my hair cut short back then, and my face was clean-shaven. I run a hand through the long locks that hang nearly to my shoulders now. It’s grown out thick and wavy. Even I have to admit it’s unkempt, and the short, coarse black beard on my face matches.

My voice sounds different, too. I think back to the thick accent I had in those years that I was still learning English, fresh from the old country. I’m so used to it now that English almost sounds as natural as my native Italian on my tongue. I might as well be a different person.

Better that way, I think. When I look into that mirror, I’m not sure I even see myself anymore. What I do see is the face of a man who’s done terrible things. A “made man,” they call us in this country. Mafioso.

What are you really doing here, Bruno?

My mind flashes back to her face, that gorgeous face that’s kept me going all this time. A bright candle in the darkness.

That face doesn’t need to know fear ever again. It doesn’t need to know me.

So why am I here, coming to risk dragging the past back? I don’t dare turn the ignition and drive off. I’ve made my decision, and I’m a man of my word.

After all, I tell myself, I’m not here just to see her, to remind myself that she’s alive and living happily, that what I did for her was all worth it. I’m here to make sure she’s safe.

Shameless by M. Malone and Nana Malone

I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector…a killer…I am Noah Blake.

There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am…an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore…usually.

It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak…shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.

But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else…

Review

First off, be aware that this ends on a cliffy as I call them. That’s because this juicy goodness from M. Malone and Nana Malone is told in a trilogy of books. I’m not always crazy about that format, and I usually wait until all of the books are out first, but Noah sounded like such a hottie I couldn’t resist.

 

This falls under the ‘Best Friend’s Sister’ trope, and it’s a good one. Lucia is still mourning the loss of her brother, who was killed 6 years earlier. She’s determined to get to the answer of who killed him. Noah is her brother’s best friend. He owns a security company, and is doing his level best to keep Lucia from digging into her brother’s death, because the more she digs, the more danger she is in. He also wants her, but is determined to keep away. You know, the old ‘I want her, can’t have her, she’s too good for me” and so on. The sparks fly and oooh wait for it….big cliffy at the end! Despite that? Loved it!! And so will you!

Excerpt 1

Brent interjected. “I should probably be going.”

Lucia gripped his forearm harder. “No. Stay. Noah is going. Aren’t you Noah?”

Noah grinned, his devilish smile bringing a mischievous twinkle to his eyes. Looking at the two of them in close proximity, Lucia could see clearly that there was no competition. Noah had dark sooty lashes that framed those intense whiskey-colored eyes, high cheekbones, a straight Roman nose, and full lips that tilted crookedly when he smiled. The man was gorgeous and he knew it. Which was a problem. Because he often used it to get what he wanted.

Brent, in comparison, also had dark hair, but not as dark as Noah’s. It also didn’t fall in disarray where some parts looked styled and other parts unkempt, but mostly looking like he’d just rolled out of bed. Or he’d rolled out of bed with someone. Brent’s eyes were a pale blue. Kind. He was cute in that boy-next-door, All-American kind of way. He didn’t look like he belonged in a fashion magazine, not like Noah did.

Feeling a little uncharitable comparing Brent so unfavorably with Noah, she had to concede that he was at least tall. Not as tall as Noah, but few men could compare to Noah’s towering height. Besides it wasn’t about looks, or height, or charisma, anyway.

Annoyed with herself, Lucia closed her eyes, hoping maybe this was all a bad dream, but when she opened them again Noah was still there. With him in the room, it was hard to breathe. He dominated and sucked up all the air, silently pulling her towards him with his gravitational force alone. It was like poor Brent wasn’t even there.

“Now, Lucia, I know you’d like to think you’re in charge right now. But you’re not. You don’t know this guy. And you invited him back to your place? I thought I taught you better than that.”

Brent tried to make an escape again. “Lucia, why don’t you deal with this guy? And we’ll try this again later.”

“No. You’re not going anywhere.”

Noah pushed himself to a seated position. “Oh yes he is. Because, you and I need to discuss what the hell this is for.” He held up the party gift from the bachelorette party.

Oh no. Oh no. Oh no.

In that moment, Lucia prayed to every saint her grandmother had ever forced her to pray to. Prayed to the Virgin Mary then to Jesus. Heck, for good measure, she added Buddha in there too. Just in case. But nothing happened. The ground did not open and swallow her.

Instead, she stood with her hand on Brent’s arm, staring at Noah as he held up the largest purple dildo she’d ever seen in her life.

Brent’s mouth fell open but no sound came out. As mortified as she was, Lucia couldn’t really blame him. The stupid thing was over a foot long, and thick. Really, really thick. Like thicker than a cucumber. She’d certainly never used the thing. It was a gag gift.

“How dare you go through my things!” she squeaked.

Noah shrugged. “I didn’t go through your things. The drawer was open. The thing was practically sticking out of it. Making its escape.”

Next to her, Brent shifted his gaze to her.

“That’s not mine,” she whispered. “I m-mean it is but I’ve never used it. It’s a gag gift from a bachelorette party.” She swung her gaze to Noah. “Put that down.”

“Not a chance. I mean, this thing is fascinating. I’m no stranger to toys myself. As far as I’m concerned, they can always enhance the situation. I’m not one of those guys that feel jealous or threatened. Matter of fact, I’m all for a little solo play. But this thing.” He held it up and shook it around. “Even I’ve never seen anything like it. And I’ve had a lot of practice.”

He turned his attention to Brent. “No disrespect to you, but I don’t think you can live up to this. It vibrates and rotates! Even I feel a little frightened by this thing.”

Screw the ground opening up and swallowing her whole. Just shoot her now. That would end this quickly. Shoot her. Send her little behind to heaven. Because she was done. Noah was bending the dildo around as it wiggled in his hands. He pushed the button, and the damn thing rotated on its own, making a whirring sound. Oh God. Could this get any worse?

Brent fixed his gaze on her. “I’m going to go.”

“No, please don’t go.”

She lunged and grabbed at the dildo, tugging when Noah refused to release it. The silicone material bent in ways Lucia was sure it wasn’t intended to as they fought over it. This was easily one of the most undignified moments of her life but she just couldn’t take it anymore. Noah’s smug face as he watched her struggling to get a better grip on the wiggling, gyrating piece of plastic only made it worse.

“Ugh, let go!”

In a fit of sudden anger, Lucia kicked him in the shin. And in his surprise, Noah let go of his end of the toy. The next few seconds would forever play in her mind in slow motion as she watched the toy fly end over end and hit Brent directly in the face.

“Ouch!”

Lucia covered her mouth in horror as the toy fell to his feet. The silence that followed was only broken by the sounds of the still-running toy, wiggling over the carpet.

Noah guffawed. “My bad. Did I get it in your mouth? Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean anything. What’s a little dick in the mouth between friends, am I right?”

M. Malone

Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella “Teasing Trent”, her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.

She’s now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.

Nana Malone

USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she “borrowed” from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The Bad Guy by Celia Aaron

 

Title: The Bad Guy

Author: Celia Aaron

Genre: Dark Romance

Release Date: May 21, 2017

 

Blurb

 

My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this

story.

I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once

in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will

get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of

my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.

Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek

forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company.

Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I

lost her.

She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But

every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all

down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he

wants. That’s me.

I’m the bad guy.

KG Logo

Sometimes, a book comes along that makes you squirm. Maybe, because you are totally uncomfortable, maybe because you are turned on, or it could be a bit of both. The Bad Guy is a bit of both for me. Sebastian Lindstrom is the bad guy in this story, the “White Knight” is Link, Sebastion’s VP of Marketing in the company that Sebastian is the CEO of, then, there is Camille Briarlane. She’s a teacher, biologist, and botanist. Most of all, she becomes the obsession of both men.

But as we get into this story, we start to wonder. We know Sebastian is not quite right. He doesn’t process emotions like the rest of us, but he does do quite a bit for Camille that makes you say hmmm. Then there is our white knight, maybe he’s not so white after all?

I absolutely loved this book! And I really liked Sebastian, where in the beginning, I was all for someone hitting him with a lead pipe. Camille is a cool customer, if not a bit much into her plants. And Mint? You’ll love that kid!

Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay
Release Date: May 16th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Duke of Manhattan, an all-new contemporary romance by Louise Bay is available now!!!

DukeofManhattan.Ebook

I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom.

Back in Britain my family are fighting over who’s the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it’s me–if I’m married. It’s not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman.

Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I’ve never wanted — so I need a wife.

To take my mind off business I need a night that’s all pleasure. I need to bury myself in a stranger.

The skim of Scarlett King’s hair over my body as she bends over . . .

The scrape of her nails across my chest as she screams my name . . .

The bite of her teeth on my shoulder just as we both reach the edge . . .

It all helps me forget.

I just didn’t bargain on finding my one night stand across the boardroom table the next day.

She might be my latest conquest but I have a feeling Scarlett King might just conquer me.

A sexy, standalone romance.

KG Logo

Louise Bay has done it once again! She’s given us another sexy, dominant, male in Manhattan. Only, this guy is British aristocracy. I wondered when I picked it up if this was going to be another marriage of convenience story but it was so much better.

Ryder deals with investments, and has quite the successful company. He’s called back home when his grandfather, the duke, has a fall. Ryder is set to inherit the title, but he has to be married , or the title reverts to his jerk of a cousin, Frederick.

When one-night stand Scarlett shows up looking for help, Ryder has an interesting solution for Scarlett. Then, it’s proving their relationship to everyone, including Frederick. Just a fun, sexy read from Louise. This carries on the Manhattan series with the awesomeness we come to love from Ms Bay!

Jungle Rapture (Jaguar Queens 1) by M.A. Jewell

junglerapture1l__43994.1493178634.300.450

Product Description

The Jaguar Queens, 1

An advocate for endangered species, journalist Kelsi Gorman travels to the Brazilian Amazon to locate a mysterious black jaguar the size of a saber-toothed tiger. Instead, the enormous cat finds her knee deep in mud, blood, and smugglers. 

Jaime Salazar, one of a few surviving male jaguar shifters, encounters a scent he never thought to find—a female jag shifter. Jag queens exist only in the elder’s stories, but someone staked out a she-cat like poacher bait. 

In a fit of primal instinct, Jaime marks Kelsi as his mate. Now, no other female will arouse him. To avoid a long celibate life, he is forced to woo his reluctant mate-to-be. But first he must keep her alive.

KG Logo

Jungle Rapture is the first book in the Jungle Queens series written by M.A. Jewell, who is a new author to me. I’m awfully glad I picked up this book, and the only negative thing I have to say is that I was bummed that it was so short. (It’s one of Evernight’s Reading On The Go books). Shifter books are a genre that I’ve only gotten into over the past couple of years, and it’s a very fluid world other than they shift and want mates. Ms Jewell has written a richly, lush world for her story and I was so impressed with the detail and the characters.

We pretty much deal with Kelsi Gorman and Jamie Salazar for the entirety. Kelsi finds herself in quite a bit of trouble with some poachers at the beginning of the book. Jamie is a black jaguar shifter who is trying to keep his identity secret, both as the giant black jaguar he is, and who his human side is. So he helps Kelsi out, but as a jaguar, until he has no choice but to reveal himself to her, because after all, she’s his mate.

However, Kelsi has no clue who or what she is, and doesn’t believe or want Jamie as a mate. But after a day of violence, Kelsi has her eyes opened, but will she choose Jamie, or leave him?

I was completely riveted to this book, and was close to having a bit of a bratty foot stomping moment because there wasn’t any more book to read. You’ll definitely want to check this one out, and I’ve found myself a new author to love

Excerpt:

Jaime stayed silent in the face of her outburst. With a deliberate nod, he stood. She guessed him to be about six-foot-four. He toed off rubber boots that appeared way too small then lowered the zipper of his pants. Kelsi gasped before looking pointedly at the damp earth.

“I must disrobe or go naked the rest of our hike. Don’t look away. It’s essential you know me as I am.”

Kelsi jerked a nod. Her sanity rode on this next minute. His pants dropped to his feet, and he stepped from them. Her gaze followed the perfect, masculine form of his calves to his thighs. She gasped again. Still seated, she got a full frontal of the healthy weight at his groin.

Uncut, interesting. She forced herself to look him in the eye. The half-grin returned. He may be some unearthly, were-something, but he was still a typical man.

Jaime dropped to a prone position. “I’ll lie still in cat form. So you feel safe.”

“That’s thoughtful.” Kelsi couldn’t keep the sarcasm from her voice. Likely, he played her like some pervert exhibitionist. Although, he did have goods worth looking at.

“Remember, I cannot harm you. You are—special.”

Before she could ask what he meant, Jaime grimaced. His body shimmered with a dark light that grew beyond his form. The nimbus cast a beast shape around his body, darkened further, then melted away.

Kelsi’s strangled yelp cut the air. She scrambled back from the massive jaguar lying in Jaime’s place. Black Beauty. The cat settled his muzzle on his front paws and raised amazing blue eyes to her. True to Jaime’s word, the beast didn’t move a muscle.

Kelsi froze in wonder. If the dart drug did this, she’d know eventually. But wow, what a ride! Her knees sank into the damp earth as she crawled on all fours to the cat.

“Hi there, Black Beauty. Such a pretty boy.”

The lush fur, so close, called to her. As Jaime predicted, the jaguar’s sedate manner gave her a sense of safety. Ferns near his nose quivered in time with his regular breaths. She reached a hand to his neck and slid fingers into his pelt. Aside from leaning into her touch, the animal didn’t move.

Kelsi edged closer. She reveled in the nearness to the great cat. Like a child who couldn’t stay away from a fluffy kitten, she ruffled his ears then leaned in to nuzzle his fur. His luscious scent further soothed, melting away any remaining angst.

“Thank you for saving me,” she whispered. Fully into the fantasy, or her delirium, she lay next to him and stroked his side.

Black Beauty blinked and lifted his face to hers. He flicked his whiskers before the tip of his tongue dabbed her nose.

She giggled. A visceral part of her wanted the magnificent animal to accept her touch. All those times the big cats approached her—unusually interested in her over the other zookeepers—she’d yearned to tousle their ears or ruffle their fur. Logic never allowed her to indulge.

Petting the cat, she couldn’t help the smile that split her face. “You’re amazing.”

White light rose from the jaguar’s form enveloping her hand. While the glow hid his body, fur turned to bare skin under her touch. The halo of light receded. With that same knowing, half-smile, Jaime propped his head on a raised elbow and turned to his side. “So are you, anjo.”

His arousal lay prominent, front and center, along his abdomen. Kelsi’s mouth froze in an “O”. A beat too late, she yanked her arm to her own personal space. Heat flushed her cheeks and other hidden parts.

Dangerously Bad by Eden Bradley

Being bad never felt so good…

Duff Stewart has two specialties: restoring vintage motorcycles and doing bad things to beautiful girls at New Orleans’s most notorious BDSM club. And there’s no girl he’d rather be with than the stunning Layla Chouset.

Layla has sworn off relationships with Dominant men, but there’s something about the gorgeous Scotsman, and he is determined to win her heart. She may agree to submit to his every want and desire, but can she submit to love…?

Review

I get big time excited when Eden Bradley has a new book out, because for people like me, she’s a goddess. I’m a subbie and not afraid to say it, while I don’t mind reading BDSM books written by authors not in the lifestyle, I do prefer it. Eden knows what she’s writing about, which makes the experience for me as a reader, writer, blogger and yes, a sub, way more satisfying.

So, I excitedly dove into the book and then I stopped. The brakes went on for a couple of reasons. One, I’m not a fan of interracial books where it’s the woman. And it’s not because i’m racial, it’s because I put myself in the characters place, so that just turns it off for me. Then, the biggest reason…Layla is a Domme. That usually makes me just toss the book aside and be done with it, and when it’s the “male dom converts female domme into sub” storyline, I usually stay as far away from the book as I can, BUT this is Eden Bradley, so I decided to keep on going with it. I’m very glad I did.

Eden did a fantastic job with recent Scotland transplant Duff Stewart, cousin to Jaime. A hot Scot in a kilt with a killer bod and a brogue? Um, yeah. You can bet I’d convert from a domme, a vanilla chick, even a nun, to get my hands on Duff. Luckily, our Domme doesn’t take most of the book to decide to submit to Duff. (another of my toss the book reasons) Smart girl. The scenes the two of them have are so hot I needed the AC cranked on high. Eden writes incredible sex scenes. Once again, I’m just blown away.

Bayside Desires (Love in Bloom-Bayside Summers 1) by Melissa Foster

Synopsis

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

“​With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!” -NYT Bestseller Julie Kenner​

“Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!” -NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely​

In Bayside Desires…
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses.

Review

Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster is the first book in the Bayside Summers series which fits in her Love In Bloom series of books. (I’d be here for a long, long time if I listed all of those books) But the good part is that all of the books can be read as a standalone. I’ll stand right up and admit that the reason I decided to read this book initially was that it was set in Cape Cod, Mass. Seeing as how I’m from Massachusetts and have spent many a summer “Down the Cape”, it appealed.

I ended up loving it oh so very much, and for me to love a straight-up vanilla romance says a lot about the author. It was a total, feel-good, romantic, beachside read for me. I’m definitely going back to read it’s sister series. But the premise here is that straight-laced school teacher Desiree Cleary gets an e-mail from her wayward mom telling her she needs to come and run her Cape Cod art gallery for the summer because it might prolong her life. Desiree is in for a surprise when she shows up and so does her sister Violet, who got the same message, about HER. What mom Lizza does next is shocking.

But the uptight Desiree meets Rick Savage, who is partners with his brother and friend in Bayside Resort. He is down for a few weeks for renovations before flying back to DC for his stifling 80 hour a week company. He and Desiree meet with quite a splash, and the fireworks are instant. But it’s the Cosmos that brings them together. Problem is, both of them have jobs to go back to, and there’s one big problem for two estranged sisters to deal with.

There is lots of romance in this book, and by the end, (more like a third way through) you’ll fall in love with Rick and want him for your very own book boyfriend. He’s THAT swoon-worthy. Desiree just blooms throughout this book and becomes an amazing, loving woman you just want to hug. And the secondary characters are just fabulous! My absolute favorite was Violet, my soul sister. She had me laughing so hard at points, and despite her snark, she obviously loves and protects Desiree. My favorite line of the whole book was Violet to Des…

“Fine. I love your sorry a**. Now let’s go into P-town and see what kind of f**kery we can get into.”

You gotta love a sister who will drag you to the gayest place in the Northeast to have yourself a great time, Lord knows I always do!

Lily by M.A. Horst

 

 

Title: Lily

Series: A Force of Nature Fairytale #2

Author: M.A. Horst

Genre: Standalone Erotic Romance

Release Dates: May 15, 2017

Blurb

Lily has

been born into wealth, and with that comes a certain responsibility. She has

been promised to Hail, who has just taken over Royal Industries along with his

brothers and cousins. The Royal family screams power and money and they’ll

destroy anyone who stands in their way of acquiring more.

Hail is

more forceful and unyielding than the preppy son of a greedy bastard Lily took

him for. Everything about him is dominant. When his eyes lock with hers sparks

fly instantly. Lily belongs to Hail and there’s nothing she can do but honor

her grandfather’s promise.

Just one

look at Lily and Hail is determined to own her in every way. He doesn’t want

her obedience just because she’s honoring a promise. He wants her obedience

because she craves to please him.

 

The force of nature might just be too much for the delicate Lily.

Lily is the second in the Force of Nature novellas by M. Horst and I will say this one was even more enjoyable than the first. It is one of those insta-love books, but seeing as how it’s short, and it is a fairy tale of sorts, it’s actually pretty appropriate for this series. And I’ll admit, once in awhile, a bit of love and sweetness just feels good with all of the other things going on nowadays.

Lily is supposed to marry Hail Royal because of a business deal her grandfather made. Not only is Hail Royal due a Flower female to wed and create his heirs, but Lily’s father is also happy about the monetary donation Royal will be making to his company. Of course, Lily is not thrilled, but even worse, her mother has her own company and has made a side deal to an arrogant, misogynistic, old, fat, pig of a man, Jasper Kingsley.a deal for her hand as well. Both men are invited to dinner.

Hail brings his brother Lake to the dinner because he’s interested in Lily’s sister, Rose, but before he can be properly introduced to Lily, Jasper muscles his way and gropes Lily, telling her that he can’t wait to own her and she’ll be on her knees and naked. Hail decides enough is enough when Jasper is groping her before the dinner rolls are even passed around, so they leave. The fireworks commence as they do, and then…Lily gets upset and the drama commences. Will Hail be able to rescue fair maiden from the evil clutches of the King(sley)? Will true love prevail? YOU will just have to get yourself a copy and find out!!!

Seriously, this was a fun read, and I really liked both Hail and Lily’s characters a lot. I’m positively chomping at the bit, (no, I’m not into pony play *snicker*) for Rose’s book. So far, I’m loving this series!

Under His Protection by Doris O’Connor

under

Product Description

Jacqui Page is all set to spend her thirty-fifth birthday eating her body weight in chocolate and watching chick flicks—until her best friend drags her off to visit the local BDSM club.

Now, a birthday spanking sounds like a mighty fine idea. Especially if it’s going to be delivered by the one man she’s been secretively lusting after for weeks—her melt your panties in an instant, bad boy neighbor.

Lukas Markz can’t believe his eyes when his shy, goody-two-shoes, next-door neighbor turns up at his club, dressed as every Dom’s wet dream. He doesn’t do commitment, but witnessing her submission brings out his inner caveman. No other man is going to get to mark her soft skin or listen to the sounds of her surrender. This bundle of curves is under his protection, and he will show her what it means to be his.

This is a previously published work. It has been revised and edited for Evernight Publishing. 

Be Warned: BDSM, public exhibition, sex toys, anal sex

Time to break out the party hats! That really good chocolate! (I’m a fan of Cadbury’s myself) And if you are really adventurous, the whips and floggers! Doris O’Connor has a new book out and it’s time to celebrate! (Ok, it was in an anthology, Dominant Persuasions (no longer available) Now, you can get the re-edited story, Under His Protection, and trust me, you DO!

It’s Jacqui’s 35th birthday and all she wants to do is hang out at home with her tub of ice cream, but her friend Lauren decides it’s time for her to stop reading about her fantasies and live them out. She takes her to a BDSM club where she first gets hit on by the bouncer, then she finds out that Lauren set her up, last, and certainly not least, she finds out her neighbor she has a crush on is her Dom for the night.

Lucas is shocked to find his neighbor at the club, and even more shocked to find out she’s there for birthday spankings. There’s no way he’s letting another Dom give them to her, and there’s no way he’s letting anyone see her get them but him. But Jacqui has seen numerous woman coming out of his apartment, does she really want to get involved with a player and have her heart broken?

Despite this being shorter than most, this was an excellent read! I loved both of the main characters and how they interacted with each other. And as always, Doris writes the most incredibly hot D/s ever! I end up needing the chocolate and water afterwards!

Excerpt:

Going on instinct and the very real need to touch her, Lukas stepped up behind her. Putting his hand over hers on the glass, he grasped her hip with his free hand, and kicking her legs apart with his foot, pulled her flush against him. There was no way on Earth she would miss his raging boner, and, sure enough, another one of those cock hardening groans came from her.

Lukas brought one of his thighs up and between her legs, and it was his turn to groan, as the wet heat of her pussy seared his thigh even through their combined clothing.

“Naughty girl, you’re soaked through.”

He dropped a kiss on the rapidly beating pulse point in her neck, and grazed his teeth along the sensitive flesh. Gooseflesh erupted on Jacqui’s skin, and her hips flexed, as though she was trying to gain purchase on his thigh. When he rubbed that limb up and down her sodden crotch, she gasped, and put her other hand on the glass, too.

“Oh, God.”

Her heartfelt plea only served to make Lukas harder, and grasping her hips with both hands he lifted her up. With her feet dangling off the floor, her whole weight rested on his thigh, and she tensed when he slid her up and down his leg.

Head down, so that her hair obscured her expression, it was still pretty damn obvious that his naughty little dove was fast hurtling toward release, and it was suddenly imperative to Lukas that she did. Never in his wildest dreams would he have thought little Miss Goody Two-shoes would be this responsive, and it was fucking hot to witness. As was watching Jake and Lauren, when he flicked a glance over to the action.

“Head up and watch them, little dove.”

Letting go of her hip for a moment, Lukas fisted his hand in Jacqui’s hair. It effectively forced her to look up and see what was going on.

“Oh, fuck.”

He grinned at her response, and resuming his slow slide along her cunt, nuzzled into her neck. “Such language from you, girl. Keep that up, and a spanking won’t be the only thing you’ll get from my hands. Maybe that’s what you want though?”

He pulled back just in time to see Jake reach between him and Lauren, and grasp the end of the butt plug decorating his sub’s ass. He thrust that object in and out of Lauren’s clenching hole with one hand, while he continued fucking her pussy, and Jacqui whimpered.

It made Lukas speed up the friction he created between her legs, and his jeans grew damp with his girl’s arousal. The sweet musk of aroused woman filled his nostrils, and he pressed his advantage.

“Is my naughty girl imagining that was her cunt being fucked?”

Another little mewl escaped her, and Jacqui locked her arms better to push back against him.

Lukas bit down on the perspiration-soaked flesh in front of him, and she gave a strangled groan that made his cock twitch in need.

Soothing the red mark away with his tongue, he yanked her head sideways so that he could kiss her. Her gasp of surprise gave him access, and Lukas grunted his own need when she kissed him back. Hesitant at first and then with ever bolder strokes of her tongue, that meant he had to break the kiss, before he took her right here in the corridor, where anyone would come across them.

While that idea had merit, and his cock was all but screaming at him to claim this woman, he forced himself to pull back.

Breaths seesawing in and out, her corset had slipped with the force of her breathing. It now revealed the edge of her areolae. It made Lukas want to lean down and trace his tongue along the pebbled flesh to coax out the tight nipples poking through their restraints.

He did neither however, just drank in the sight of his woman, and dammit, she was his, even if only for tonight. Face flushed, kiss swollen lips parted, she looked breathtakingly beautiful, and his chest tightened with a rush of emotion he didn’t dare quantify.

“Open your eyes, little dove.”

He grimaced at the rough timbre of his voice, and watched in rapt fascination as her eyelids fluttered open. If he had any doubts about how aroused she was, the evidence was there in her hugely dilated pupils. Only a small ring of blue remained around the outer edges, as she tried to focus on him.

He smiled, and pulled her head back round toward the glass.

A soft, needy, sound escaped her. It was so damn fucking hot, as was the action on the other side of that window.

Lauren shook and shivered, her mouth open in a scream they couldn’t hear, as she was reaching her climax, and the rosy flush of her release could be seen all over her body.

“Oh my God.”

Jacqui’s whisper turned into a groan when Lukas resumed his slide along her cunt, and she jerked. Behind the glass, Jake pulled out the butt plug at the same time as he pulled out of Lauren’s wet cunt. Aligning himself with her gaping butt hole, he thrust in deep.

Jacqui stiffened in front of him as Jake set up a ruthless rhythm. One that Lukas mirrored with his thigh, while he continued to whisper to his girl.

“Imagine that’s you, tied for my pleasure. Your butt is still sore from your spanking, and your cunt well used, while I claim your sweet ass. Ever taken a man up the ass, little dove?”
