CHRISTMAS BOOK BLAST AUTHOR- MISSY MARTINE

Discovering_73Determined to make a new life for herself, Maddie Bowers travels to her late grandfather’s cabin in Wyoming. When she was a little girl, she was first introduced to her grandfather’s wolf and is delighted to find the wolf still living in the nearby woods, and that the wolf remembers her.

Remus has known Maddie was his mate since she was young. But a tragic accident and a cruel doctor kept them apart. Now that she is back, it’s up to him to help her control her secret abilities and accept the truth about her heritage.

The love between Maddie and Remus will be threatened by a jealous woman and Maddie’s brother’s partnership with the evil doctor that kept her confined for so many years. Can Maddie and Remus realize their destiny before it’s too late?

“I have always been fascinated by anything paranormal, or supernatural. A lot of my personal reading material consists of werewolves, witches, and vampires. It seemed only natural for me to create my own story about shape shifters. For my heroine, I focused on a woman who was strong in character, able to withstand anything that life threw at her, and still come out on top. I think I achieved that with Maddie.” ~Missy~

Note: This book contains anal sex.

Friday’s Find: After Hours

16104369

A dangerous infatuation with a rough and ready man… 

Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it.

Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.

What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.

TOUCHED by Eden Elgabri

get-attachment (6)TOUCHED

by Eden Elgabri

I don’t think much of men. I never have. They have one
purpose – to satisfy my sexual needs. I take what I want
when I want it. Only when I want it. My therapist says,
“Val, you’re self-destructive and have low self-esteem.”
I don’t see it that way. I see it as control. Most women
live under the guise of illusion. They never understand
pretty-perfect is only façade.

As a pediatric oncology nurse, I see ugly on a daily basis.
So I don’t believe in pretty or happy. There’s only real.
Then I met Max McKenna. He opened old wounds and
made me an offer too good to pass up. If I could only
remain sane through the process. Okay, so maybe he’s
just the first man I couldn’t bring to his knees. Maybe
that’s all it is, this burning desire to wear him down and
have my way with him. Maybe then I could get him out
of my head. I never lied to myself before Max or had
such a burning desire to be… TOUCHED.

 

DOUBLE OCCUPANCY by Elaine Raco Chase

DOUBLE OCCUPANCY

by Elaine Raco Chase

Meet Casey Reynolds – she is NOT thin, petite, clueless, virginal or submissive.

Which is exactly why Travis Craig wanted to ‘kick down her door and throw her on that bed.’

Read the couple that reviewers have said: “their witty banter will have you laughing but their hot and steamy moments will have you begging for more.” “a book with solid characters & lots of humor” “amazing read, I wish it was longer.”

Read why this erotic duo has been on FB’s What to Read After 50 Shades of Grey – top 50 books – for 26 weeks! (12/27/2012)

No BDSM! Meet the Keurig killer who makes one tough alpha male go down on his knees and a few other positions as well!

All Casey Reynolds wanted was peace and quiet and a long vacation from covering the crime beat in Boston. That’s why she agreed to borrowing a villa in Mexico to rest, be alone and work on her novel.

But then he showed up — Travis Craig. He said he was offered the villa to recover from a serious illness. He had just lost his teaching job and had no money to leave.

She agreed with his plan to share the house — but on her terms. Soon rest and relaxation were a thing of the past when their double occupancy proved too erotic to control.
______________________________________________________________
“It was a stupid idea, sharing this place. It’s not like a co-ed dorm, it’s just you and me, not a bunch of people. And it’s quite obvious that all this togetherness has just made our hormones go crazy.

“Yes, that’s it…we are just two horny people being controlled by hormones. Between you being sick, then playing Tarzan and our trip to the jungle lagoon and all those olives and too much sun, and wet bathing suits. And you getting mad over the seven erotic knights – with a k, and my bad sunburn. Then me being Cleopatra with the perky ass and the milk baths and position number thirty-eight in the Kama Sutra.

“And you playing doctor and all that clinical foreplay and…and our underwear tumbling around in the washer and dryer together and wet bathing suits and you naked with a staple in your navel and –” her words skidded to a halt, she took a breath and realized she wasn’t making any sense. “God, I need a frozen cheesecake.

At his snicker, Casey squared her shoulders. “Don’t even go there, mister. I am not PMS’ing, contrary to your masculine brain. I never have PMS and the pills I take only give you a period three times a year and I’m not due for another three months.” Her hand slapped over her mouth. “Oh, my God, you have successfully driven me insane!”

Ebook Review: 12/22/2011: LOVE ON THE BOOKSHELF: In Double Occupancy, Chase does well by her characters, giving them room in their close-quartered villa to really express themselves and draw the reader into their love story. Their witty banter will have you laughing but their hot and steamy moments will have you begging for more. By isolating her hero and heroine like this, Chase has given the reader the chance to indulge in a R&R too, focusing on the budding relationship between Travis and Casey. Get lost in this story as though you’re resting up in the villa for yourself… I found it pretty hard to put this one down and climb back into the real world, myself!

XXX for some smokin’ hot lovin’ and some pretty explicit word choices ahem, Travis.

 

PATTY’S RECOMMENDATION- Fifty Shades of Grey

booksFIFTY SHADES OF GREY

by E L James

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

KATE CREW’S POWERTOOLS

by Jayne Rylon

katescrewweb

 

Nothing’s sexier than a man, or five, with power tools.

Sultry summer heat has nothing on the five-man crew renovating the house next door. No one could blame Kate for leaning out the window for a better view of the manscape. The nasty fall that follows isn’t part of her fantasy—but the man who saves her from splattering the sidewalk is definitely the star.

When Mike personally attends to her injuries, she realizes her white knight in a hard hat has a tender side, giving her no choice but to surrender to the lust that’s been arcing between them since day one. In the aftermath of the best sex of her life, she whispers her most secret desire: to be ravaged by his crew.

She never expected Mike would dare her to take what she wants—or that the freedom to make her most decadent desires come true could be the foundation for something lasting…
