~ As a Thank You to My Readers... ~

Earlier today I had a huge shock... For the first time I have had the incredible experience of seeing my book on the top 100 list for erotica novels on Amazon! I'm thrilled and I just wanted to say thank you to my readers for making my day...and possibly my year!

So, as a thank you...I'm going to share a sneak peek of my upcoming release with you! Enjoy!
Deadly Target
Book 3 of the IAD Agency Series
Coming July 31st!
“What are you doing?”
“What does it look like I’m doing?” Mikayla whispered as her hands slid down his chest, over his rock-hard abs until they reached the front of his jeans.
            His breath hissed out as she began working the top button of his jeans opened while her other hand stroked over the rigid length of his cock through the thin material. “Jesus, Mikayla. This room doesn’t have a lock. We can’t do this here.”
            She laughed at the incredulous look on his face as she drew the zipper of his jeans down, allowing the thick, hard length of him to spring free. She took his cock in her hand, pleased that her fingertips didn’t touch around the thick shaft. She nipped at his chin with her teeth as she began stroking his cock, rubbing the pearl of pre-cum weeping at the tip with her thumb.
“Don’t tell me the great Gage Stark is worried about someone seeing us.”
His eyes widened in surprise even as the lust flared brighter in his emerald green eyes. “You aren’t?”
Mikayla shrugged. “You started this. Now I’m aching and want you to finish it. Finish me, come on, Gage. I dare you.”
Fucking hell, she was trying to kill him.
Gage’s breath left in a rush. Christ, he felt like someone had sucker punched him. His body burned with a possessive fire as his mind snapped off and he began pulling at her pants with shaking hands. Thank god for elastic, he thought gleefully as he shoved the black pants down her legs easily, remembering at the last moment to be careful of the bandage on her thigh.
Fuck him, he wanted to devour her, to eat her up with big greedy bites. And he would, but not here. Not know when anyone could walk in and see them. He’d be damned if he let anyone see his woman naked.
And she was...his.

Available Memorial Day 2013!


To the average eye this Washington D.C. power couple seems to have it all:  power, money, status.  What they really have is a firm grip on the image they portray.  However, like most couples in this social circle, they live very different lives behind closed doors.

David and Elise McNarry are a seasoned, political couple, and they understand the importance of appearance. They also understand that their relationship is based on love, not sex.  And while they’re still both madly in love with one another, they have grown apart over the years.

Facing the consequences of exposure, their chief political strategist and friend Patricia Johnson comes up with a plan to put out the fires before the media can fan the flames.  But when things don’t go as planned, it’s more than feelings that are at stake.


The phone stopped blinking and David McNarry lifted his head and his eyes narrowed in on her, “You were telling me what your type of man was.”

“Right.  My type.  You really want to know my type?”  Leila settled back into her chair and sipped her drink.

“Yes Leila I think I’d be very interested in that information,” David smiled conspiratorially.

“I like a mature man, a little gray around the temples, and one that views his experience as an asset.  Someone who knows what they want, and isn’t afraid to do anything to get it.”  She watched him carefully to see his reaction.  Most people would have thought her words were too forward but David smiled slightly.  It was as if he expected those very words to flow from her shiny pink lips.


“Anything.  But most of all, someone who could take me as their own, not afraid to objectify me, and use me as they wished.”

“Sounds pretty daring.  Not much of a romantic, are we?”  This was clearly a test, she thought.  This was his way of seeing if I were serious.

“Not at all.  For one to be romantic, you must put more into lovemaking than I have the time or inclination for.  No, just give me the raw, carnal sex, and don’t hold back.  I like it…” she said with a whisper as she stood and approached him, “rough.”

The Senator cleared his throat, making a loud, obvious sound in order to convey not only his surprise, but his approval.  “I see where my son could fall short, now.  He’s just like his Mother:  a hopeless romantic.”

Leila walked around the back of his chair, trailing her hand across his chest and around his throat.  “I haven’t seen Logan in years, Senator, but I hear he’s still a good boy.  Good boys are nice, but they bore me.  If he knew what I was thinking right now, he’d be ashamed of both of us…”

“There are many shades of shame, my dear.  You just have to find the one you’re comfortable with,” his breath became heavier with her closeness.

“Exactly.  And you, sir?”  Leila ran her fingers through his hair, pulling his head back and forcing his gaze to the ceiling.  “What are you comfortable with?”

He let out a muffled laugh, faint, but audible enough to get his point across.  “I’m certain we could find a shade we’re both comfortable with.”

 Get to know Logan McNarry before meeting his parents in Semper Fi:



Christopher and I are from the coastal area of South Carolina, what the locals would call the ‘lowcountry.’  We live a quiet life nestled just outside of Charleston with our eighteen dogs and one cat (Jenny), who thinks she’s a dog.

Chris and I started writing short stories for each several years ago.  As time passed, our stories got a little longer, and one might say a little more developed.  With Christopher’s support, I was able to dedicate my time fully to writing, and with his help published my first book in 2010.

Our focus now is developing a more complete storyline filled with rich, robust characters.  Concentrating on character development, scene development, and storyline development has been both challenging and rewarding.  Most of all, the ability to work with someone who understands constructive criticism has hopefully made us both better writers with each attempt.

We love to get emails, and we’re working on a blog site where we can post some spoilers and such.  We check into facebook periodically, and need to get back onto my blogs and, so look us up!  Or contact us at or!

~ Symposium: I Like It Like That! ~

Hello Everyone! Welcome to my May symposium, and boy, do I have a HOT one for you this time! It's finally let's turn up the heat!

What is your favorite sex scene you've written? This is the question I posed to some of my friends and fellow authors. There are all kinds of love scenes in books. Some are sweet and gentle, and some are hot and salacious...either way, you are sure to find something that flips your switch. So, sit back, relax and see what some of the hottest authors have to say about what sex scenes had them hot and bothered!

LAURIE ROMA:  Imagine being trapped in an elevator...the sexual tension that's been building for days has become so thick that it's hard to breathe. When wills and passion finally explode, it's in a wild display of need neither of them can deny. This is the scenario that I created for my characters Tara "T-rex" Toshi and Julian King from One Shot. Julian is used to being the king of his palace, but he discovers that he can't control T-rex, no matter how hard he tries. He may have her against the wall, but she has him on the floor. I wanted to invite my readers into the scene as if we were voyeurs, catching a glimpse of this scorching encounter from the security cameras above. It was definitely one of my favorite scenes to create and I can assure you, I will never look at elevators the same again!

Tara Toshi is a woman on the edge. Code name "T-rex," Tara is one of the elite agents of the IAD Agency, modern-day warriors tasked with taking down terrorists and keeping the world safe. She doesn’t believe that happily ever after exists for her, until her world collides with corporate tycoon Julian King.
Julian King is the owner of a multimillion dollar hotel empire and personally runs the Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. He is a man who rules his kingdom with an iron grip and knows that the house always wins. But when he meets agent Tara Toshi all bets are off. As a terrorist plot threatens his city, Julian realizes that he is also in jeopardy of losing his heart.
Passion explodes every time Tara and Julian come together, but can she risk taking this one shot at finding happiness and give her heart to a man she barely knows?

HEATHER RAINIER: Asking which sex scene is my favorite is a little like asking me which of my children is my favorite. They’re both my favorites but for different reasons. It’s the same with my love scenes. Lucky me, I have a lot to choose from. I think the first love scene I ever wrote, in Divine Grace, is in my top three, along with the first one-on-one love scene between Ethan and Grace in the same book. I’ve written sex scenes in just about every place imaginable: indoors in a comfy king-size bed, an elevator, fifty feet up a tree while tree camping in the mountains, a tattoo studio, as well as in numerous other public places. Writing the love scenes is a very organic part of writing the story as a whole so I don’t skip them. I feel they are more emotional and authentic done that way. What makes certain love scenes my favorite isn’t necessarily the place, position, amount of privacy—or lack thereof. It’s not even the heat level, although mine usually hit a high heat level. It’s the connection between the lovers that makes it my favorite.
The men of the Divine Creek Ranch have found the woman they’ve dreamed of. Jack loves voluptuous Grace’s giving heart and blushing cheeks. Ethan loves her wild innocence and loyalty. Adam fell in love with her the moment he laid eyes on her.
With the help of these three handsome men, Grace frees herself from an abusive boyfriend. She loves them all and knows she could never choose between them—Jack for his teasing nature, Ethan for his intuition, and Adam for his gentle ways. When danger and calamity threaten, her men proved they will protect and defend her. Grace learns what it means to be desired, pursued, and protected by three gorgeous men, finding that they will do anything to please her along the way.
Can they prove to Grace they want forever and not just a fling? Can Grace heed the advice of her sister and seize the day?


LORI KING: My favorite sex scene that I’ve written is actually not even a ménage scene-which is shocking considering that’s my favorite to write usually! It starts on page 201 of the third book in The Gray Pack series, Legacy of the Wolf. Rafe Whetstone is a werewolf who works as a fireman by day, at night he is a very talented painter. When he takes his new mate Shandi into his art studio to “paint her” things get hot and wet fast, as he proceeds to show her just how creative he can be with his paints and his fingers. The foreplay is panty-dropping-sexy, and when they finally get to the sex they are both at nuclear level. The hottest part of the scene is the physical need that they have for each other. Rafe is a very serious character, so this scene makes him more tangible and fun. Trust me, I would drop my panties for him and his paints!

Built like Vikings, the Whetstone brothers are a force to be reckoned with. As Beta Wolves of the Gray Pack, Rafe and Ryley are simultaneously two of the strongest men in the pack, and firefighters for the Kansas City Fire Department.
Twenty years have passed since their parents disappeared, and they dream of finding their mate, and having a family. They want to build a legacy of their own, but fate just dumped a big old monkey wrench in their plans by the name of…Shandi Martin.
Fighting cancer for her life, she was devastated when her boyfriend left her. So why would she want to risk her heart again? Facing destiny, she realizes that she stopped living to protect her heart three years ago. But when a mysterious rogue wolf threatens their new relationship, they are forced to make a choice. Can they accept a life with just each other, or do they need a family to be happy?
TARA ROSE: My favorite sex scene from Taming Her Racy Ways, Racy Nights 5, takes place near the beginning of the book between heroine Marisol Santiago and one of the heroes, Rafe Rodriguez. It’s raw and decadent, and unlike anything either has done before. Marisol and Rafe were high school sweethearts but broke up because their parents disapproved, and they never consummated their relationship. When they’re brought together under tragic circumstances in Racy, Indiana at the start of this book, the passion they’ve held in check for each other for eighteen years explodes into a bondage and spanking scene that left me breathless as I wrote it. Who hasn’t held a torch for the one that got away? And because they both realize they’ve also had secret BDSM fantasies for years, they now have a chance to explore that lifestyle with each other.
Marisol Santiago and Rafe Rodriguez were forced by their parents to break up when Rafe was a high school senior and Marisol was only fourteen, but they have never gotten over each other. When a tornado brings them together again eighteen years later, his parents force him to make a choice. Rafe Rodriguez has never defied his parents, but he will stop at nothing to win Marisol’s love.
Ellis McCree is smitten with Marisol after he offers to make one of her BDSM fantasies come true. She is everything he’s been searching for. But when he learns that Rafe intends to win her heart as well, Ellis knows the only way he can have Marisol is to share her with Rafe.
A searing betrayal by her best friend Ria, Rafe’s sister, drives Marisol into Ellis’s arms for comfort. But if she gives her heart as well as her body to him, will she lose Rafe in the process? 

JENIKA SNOW: I've written a lot of sex scenes since I became an author, and although I love each and every scene there is always a few that really stand out to me. When I started writing the Underground series and introduced Tate Wessen I instantly fell in love with him. Who doesn't like a bad boy with alpha tendencies? Their first sexual encounter has hints of bondage and sensory deprivation which really shows the kind of man Tate is. He isn't all good, but deep down there is a hero that wants to be set free. He is controlling and dominating, and expects complete submission. The sex and chemistry between him and Stella is explosive. I think this is why the sex between them has stood out in my mind so much.

When Stella Vincent's father gambles away her childhood home, it is up to her to get it back, but when she finally meets the man who holds the deed, she realizes just how dangerous he really is. He is tall, dark, and gorgeous, and so very bad for her.
Tate Wessen knows he is dangerous, and he counts on others realizing the same thing in order for him get what he wants. Running an illegal underground fight club isn't the worst he has ever done.
When Stella walks into his office the attraction is instant. She'll do anything to get her father's house back, and he knows that he can use this to his advantage. What he offers her is very simple. She must submit her body to him for the next two weeks. After that her father's debt is absolved.
The only problem is he finds himself falling hard for the woman who was only supposed to warm his bed.

LYNNE ST. JAMES: My favorite sex scene is from book 2 in the Vampires of Eternity Series, Twice Bitten to Paradise. It is Bree, Luc and Rafe’s story. She is a woman used to being in control, who knows what she wants and what she doesn’t.  Fucking yes—commitment not so much.  Rafe and Luc are determined to take all they can get.  In the “Lust” room in Eternity, the guys give Bree her unspoken fantasy—giving up control. Bree is bound, blindfolded and exposed on a leather-clad table and at their mercy.  The knowledge that she has an audience makes it even more exhilarating.  Luc and Rafe bring her to the edge over and over again until she begs them for release. But it doesn’t end there. The scene continues in their bedroom where they give her a night she will never forget.

Brianna McKenzie worked hard to hide her past, but when she comes face-to-face with the gypsy at the opening of Eternity, her world turns upside down. Rafael Verratti and Lucian Carpino felt the connection as soon as they met Bree. But they know that convincing her isn’t going to be easy.
Luc and Rafe aren’t the only ones who want Bree. The gypsy tries to steal her, and then a friend from her past calls to say that her father is missing. Bree decides that in order to protect the ones she cares about she’ll have to confront her past and deal with her monsters.
Rafe and Luc follow Bree to protect her but are furious and leave when she shares her dark secret. It’s then that she realizes her true feelings for them. Will Luc, Rafe, and Bree be able to accept the secrets and save themselves from curses, witches, and gypsy magic to spend Eternity together?


SUSAN HAYES: Guarding Valentina is the book that contains my favourite love scene. She’s a security specialist who’s stuck with a glib tongued, supernatural bodyguard she doesn’t think she needs and he’s a loner; a dhampir with a vampire to kill and no room in his life for anything but the mission. When I threw Valentina Farro and Aedan Doyle into a kitchen together I had no idea I was about write a sex scene that would set the bar for all my future books.  It was two volatile personalities with explosive chemistry, ice cream and maraschino cherries soaked in whisky combined with a blindfold and a kitchen table. They were two wounded warriors on the verge of discovering they were stronger together than they could ever be apart. They made a spectacular mess of that kitchen, broke some china and tore down the walls around their hearts. To this day I can’t look at a cherry garnish without thinking about that scene. 

Sometimes everything has to go wrong so fate can make it right.
Valentina Farro is used to being the hunter, not the hunted, but when a vampire marks her for death, everything changes. Now one of Paladin’s fiercest warriors is fighting for her life and the lives of her Paladin family.
It should have just been another assignment, but nothing goes according to plan when the vampire Aedan Doyle is hunting leads him around the world and into Valentina’s life. Determined to keep Val safe from the vampire’s vengeance, Aedan appoints himself as Val’s personal bodyguard. Then he makes sure he’s guarding her beautiful body up close and personal, every chance he gets.
As the body count rises, Valentina and Aedan’s new bond is tested to the breaking point. Trusting each other with their lives is one thing, but can two solitary warriors find the courage to trust each other with their hearts?

SAGE MARLOWE: When Laurie invited me over on her blog again, I was delighted. When she told me what the topic was, I was shattered. How am I supposed to pick a favourite sex scene? My characters have had plenty of action. They've had sweet and emotional, quickies, and they've had full-blast kink and now you want me to pick just one scene? Hm. Well, actually, there is one scene that sticks out. It's Noah and Pierce in Sub-Culture and the reason this scene comes to my mind now is that it combines all those elements. The scene is kinky as hell—set in a BDSM playroom with a great selection of toys—and yet, it’s one of the most intimate moments between those two given their history. I think Noah explains it best when he says, “Tie me up. Tie me down. Whatever. I’m yours. Do with me as you please.” Yeah. I like it like that.

When life gets on top, delving into a sub-culture may be just what it takes to keep a sinking relationship afloat

Five years after the bumpy start to their relationship, Noah and Pierce have settled well into their lives as a happy couple. The arrival of a new child should have made their matrimonial bliss complete, but the strain of raising a baby and a teenager, combined with a lot of pressure in their jobs, is beginning to take its toll.
In the midst of what already is a potentially explosive situation, Noah’s younger brother Jonah comes to stay with them, forcing Noah to face the issues he still has regarding his homophobic parents and adding to the emotional pressure he is under.
When Noah starts behaving oddly and Pierce just can’t seem to put his jealousy to rest, the cracks in their relationship become too severe to ignore any longer. They struggle to keep their sinking love afloat but as Noah craves the comfort a certain sub-culture can offer, Pierce finds himself wondering just how far he is willing to step out of his own comfort zone to save their love.
LARA VALENTINE: My hands down favorite scene is Noelle’s birthday in His Submissive Jewel.  Cam really pulls out all the stops in pampering her down to a bubble bath and a massage leading into the main event.  I love when a Dom takes such good care of his sub, right down to a foot massage and a hard spanking.  He introduces her to the various uses for a bondage table, and also uses a belt which is **shiver** a favorite of mine.  The scene was romantic, hot, and funny with plenty of action.   

Noelle Carter is in Montana to help with her sister’s wedding. She didn’t plan on needing to be rescued from a dangerous storm, nor did she plan on falling for the sexiest man she’s ever met. When she finds out he’s the head of a family of Dominants, she knows she should move slowly, but her feelings are too great. She plunges into a relationship with him, reveling in the passion he can arouse with just a simple touch.
Cam Hunter knows he’s a strict Dom. He never thought he’d find the perfect woman and submissive, but Noelle has stolen his heart. She’s turned him inside out and upside down. One minute he wants to kiss her senseless and the next he wants to spank her bottom bright red.
When Noelle is hurt, he knows it’s no accident. Someone is targeting her, and if Cam wants a lifetime with his woman, he’ll need to find the person responsible. 

TAYLOR BERKE: As a writer, I often find myself drifting between my current reality and my romantic sexual fantasy land.  Kids have Disney and I have erotica. We all have our happy places, it is just that I cannot easily place a poster on the wall of my room that exemplifies mine. When I was asked about a favorite sex scene that I have written, there was one that immediately flashed in front of my mind.  In Stony Creek Hero there is a scene where the heroine, Lizzie is saved by the hero, Ben.  The scene is drawn across several settings and involves almost every different expression of emotion and sexual position that seems to occur in extreme situations.  Volatile emotion and raw sensual hunger are a potent mix which I can personally relate to.  Read it and see if you find a bit of yourself within it.  I did.

The feisty, fiercely independent Lizzie Carmichael never had any men that she could rely on.  As the sole owner of The Stony Creek Café, she finds herself in a desperate situation where she stands to lose either her honor or everything that she has ever worked for.
Known as the tough, quiet brother, Benjamin Powell adores women but strives to keep them at arm’s length, never risking his heart.  When he finds that the only woman who ever inspired him to dream is in trouble, he makes a choice that could change both their lives, forever.
Lurking in the shadows of Stony Creek, there is a dangerous menace that will stop at nothing to get what it wants, no matter what the costs. As Ben and Lizzie start to explore the secret delights that they finally find in each other, can Ben protect Lizzie from the threats that try to tear them apart?


REBECCA JOYCE: She shivered as he ran the crop down her back, the cool feel of the leather warming her body. The anticipation of what was to come had her pussy spasaming as her hot essence leaked down her legs… Oh, yeah! I love writing about sex, but if there was one scene that I totally got off on (Oops, you meant like writing), it would have to be between Braxton, Charlotte & Jordan in, ‘The Sheriff’s Jailbirds’. There was just something about the three of them, which made writing about them fun. However to narrow it down to one scene, umm…I can’t, because the whole book was one fucking hot sex pool of lust and fornication! The book started out with sex and ended with sex, and throwing in the fuck chair was just the icing on the cake!

As the sheriff of Treasure Cove, Braxton Connelly has lived his life by the book. Harboring a deep secret, he ignores his heart’s desire and puts on a brave face for friends and family. Only behind closed doors, hidden rooms, and towns miles away does he give in to what he wants most.
Charlotte Ann Brooks is on the run. Hiding out in Celestial, Montana, she spends her days pecking away on computers, preferring the solitude to her loud waitressing job at the Rainbow Room. Her only saving grace is her roommate and confidant, Jordan.
Jordan Whitmore has built his little IT business from scratch. Putting everything he had into his business, he is finally comfortable and making money. That is until his roommate’s past comes barging in.
When the three worlds collide, chaos ensues. Tempers rise and all hell breaks loose in Treasure Cove. They must work together to fix the past, right the present, and save their futures.


TYMBER DALTON: While I can keep books and their story lines straight in my mind, I'll be honest that sometimes the sex scenes fade to the background for me. To me, the story is the important part of the book, and the sex is just one aspect of that. With that said, I think the most memorable one for me (and my favorite) is the first one between Will and Kal in "Good Will Ghost Hunting: Demon Seed." Because it was literally about so much more than sex. It was about saving her life from the wraith, it was about Will actively choosing to remain amongst the living (albeit forced to do so to save Kal's life), and it was about two people coming together to heal and begin a new life together. Will was such a tortured hero, and Kal was waaaay less than happy about the whole situation, which had been engineered. In fact, her whole life had basically been engineered, although she didn't know it at the time.

Can you find Heaven on Earth in the arms of an archdemon? Bet your soul on it. 
Kalyani Martin is a virginal preacher’s daughter. Waiting for Mr. Right is Kal’s plan, which doesn’t include the hunky, standoffish Will Hellenboek. 
Will cohosts the Otherworlds ghost hunting show with cousin Aidan Faust. All Will wants to do is end his life following his wife’s murder twenty-five years earlier. Falling for Kal would jeopardize everything. 
Ryan Ausar’s job as head of the Firm is to protect the Earth. Unfortunately, archdemon Will refuses to return to work. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Ryan holds a secret that, if revealed, would devastate Will and Aidan, men he once called brothers. 
With lives on the line, Kal, Will, and Ryan must choose to give up what they most hold dear. Can Kal turn her back on everything she knows and help heal a hellishly hunky archdemon’s heart?


SIOBHAN MUIR: I used to hate writing sex scenes because the story always seemed so much more interesting to write. Don't get me wrong, I love READING sex scenes, but the writing was difficult for me. This year I published Not a Dragon's Standard Virgin and it was originally turned down because the sex scenes were too "meh". So I gave them an upgrade, making them hotter. Isabelle went from being a tentative virgin after the first sex scene, to being a bold and beautiful woman accepting her needs and willing to do something about it. It turns out she's a big fan of 69. The reason it's my favorite sex scene, is Isabelle totally surprised me. She gave me hints all the way along, but she surprised me and Jon at the end. It still makes me shiver with delight.

Sacrificial virgins are so sixteenth century, but unless Isabelle finds a man to take her innocence, she’ll likely be next.
For Isabelle Andersen, being a virgin in a dragon-plagued Scottish village is dangerous. Potentially the next dragon sacrifice, Isabelle’s only solution is to lose her innocence, and fast. All she needs is one handsome stranger she can coax into bed, but Lochmore Cott doesn’t get much in the way of visitors.
Jonarrion Swiftwind has sworn off virgins. The last time he took one to his bed, his family paid the price for his lust at the hands of her demon-possessed father. He’s made it his mission to destroy all demons. Nothing distracts him from killing this demon until lovely Isabelle offers him tea. And her virginity.
Just one night of passion makes Jon realize he doesn’t want to let the independent beauty go. But will Isabelle accept him when she discovers the only real dragon in her village…is him?

AVERY GALE: My favorite sex scene is the punishment/reward scene that takes up Chapters 22 and 23 in Club Isola – Capturing Callie. In the scene, Ian and Jace bring in other members of Club Isola's security team to participate in. None of the men who are not a part of Ian, Callie and Jace’s usual ménage, bring a unique talent and specialty to the scene.  The scene was controversial among the Siren editorial staff and it was “suggested” that it be removed so the book would fit in another imprint. After a lot of soul searching and input from beta readers and other authors, I opted to leave it alone…so I’ve got a lot invested in that particular scene. I had always envisioned the Club Isola series being “edgier” than The ShadowDance Club series and this scene was a huge part of that departure.

Callie Reece has always been the responsible one…and where has it gotten her? A low-paying job as a reporter sent in a rowboat to spy on the ultra-exclusive BDSM club that caters to Washington’s inner circle.
Club owner Ian McGregor and his best friend, former Navy SEAL Jace Garrett, capture the tiny blonde beauty trying to sneak on the island. Ian is captivated by the woman he sees below the surface, and he recognizes Callie as a submissive from the moment he looks into her eyes. Ian gives her a choice—jail or a month as his submissive. Is she brave enough to pursue a lifestyle she’d already become interested in?
But Callie is the last witness to a crime committed by the only son of US Senator John Westmore. And now Grant Westmore is seeking a powerful State Department appointment, and Callie is the last loose end standing in his way. Can Ian McGregor’s billions keep Callie safe?

ERIKA REED: I think my favorite sex scene that I enjoyed writing would have been in my latest release, Blazing Inferno. This book is about three brothers who knew that Kasey was the right woman to share, just as they always knew that they'd be raising their future family in the town of Inferno, where their chosen lifestyle would be accepted and respected. While Kasey was visiting Zach, the oldest of the three brothers, at the station one day while the crew was away on a call, Zach showed her how erotic it can be to be tied up on the back of the second fire engine in the garage. Zach used the fire hose to bind Kasey's wrists and ankles and he uses her naked body for his pleasure. I believe the words "yes, sir" and "Oh my God" were used frequently as she was bound to his every desire.
Kasey Mcintyre, her cousin, and her best friend are visiting the town of Inferno, California. They’re just there to watch Kasey’s dad’s recognition ceremony at the local firehall, but there’s trouble kindling for the three of them and it’s going to stop them from enjoying their visit.
Brothers Zach, Jake, and Cody Kelly feel their libidos ignite when Kasey’s car almost collides with their fire engine. The three brothers always knew they’d find the right woman to share, just as they always knew that they’d be raising their future family here in Inferno, where their chosen lifestyle would be accepted and respected. The Kelly boys believe that Kasey is the woman for them, so when the situation heats up and burns out of control, they’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman they have all come to love.
It’s going to take love, trust, and courage for the four new lovers to discover the truth and find out who is after Kasey…and why.


HENNESSEE ANDREWS: I can tell you without a doubt that my favorite sex scene is from my book, Drew - The Texas Senator’s Sons 2. Out of all the books I’ve written, Drew is the most emotionally charged with the hottest sex. The scene I like most is when Liv Lancaster is teasing Drew Radcliff. He isn’t in the mood to deal with her or women at all after being burned so badly by his ex-fiancée. Liv’s teasing not only pisses Drew off, it also turns his personality and appetite for sex to explosive. He is gruff, demanding, and rough. He takes what he needs, but to his surprise, Liv loves it. My favorite part of their first encounter is: “Say it.” Drew growled. “I want you to fuck me, Drew.” By far, Drew is my most favorite book in The Texas Senator’s Sons series. Be sure to check out Drake in August!

Drew Radcliff hasn't had good luck with women, which created an enormous chip on his shoulder, and Liv Lancaster is just the woman to knock it off. When she sets her sights on taming the demons inside him, she finds a man able to satisfy her in ways she could only dream of.

In order to free Drew from the pain of his past, Liv knows he must forgive his own indiscretions. Putting him through what she calls The Course may be just what the doctor ordered for expelling demons keeping him from love and the happiness he truly desires.

In Liv's quest to uncover the man hidden beneath the pain, she unleashes a highly sensual and sexual man able to give her all and more. Erotic spanking and bondage prove to be the weapon of choice when fighting for the heart of the sexy senator's son, Drew.


MIA ASHLINN: My favorite love scene? Hmm…that’s a toughie. Initially, I was going to say my first love scene was my favorite. You know, the whole ‘it popped my cherry’ bit. But in reality, Micah Blaylock and Caedon Asher’s love scene from the fourth Sweet Serenity book, Three Rings and a Rose, always stands out in my mind. Now why is that? Well first of all, writing MM action just does it for me. I don’t know why, but two men together in a sexy tryst really trips my trigger. And secondly, this is the first love scene where the men didn’t spend an exorbitant amount of time talking—dirty or not. It was all about the emotion coursing through them, entirely about the passion exploding between them. Words weren’t necessary. It was just, ‘Boom!’ That was a first for me. So in essence, I guess this scene popped my cherry, too!

Ella Dawson learned the hard way how much it hurt to be trapped in the middle of Micah Blaylock and Caedon Asher. The tension between the men drove her to the edge. Then a scandal destroyed her relationship with Caedon, shredding her heart and driving her back to Serenity, Kansas.

Two years later, Caedon still can’t forget Ella or Micah. When a worried friend’s meddling provides him with an opportunity to rekindle the relationships he lost, Caedon jumps in with both feet. But he knows he’ll need Micah’s help.

Secret desires and fears push Micah to refuse Caedon. However, Caedon won’t relent. When he finally convinces Ella and Micah to give sharing a shot, what happens when the two men’s love for each other can no longer be denied? And how will their relationship survive when scandal threatens to tear them apart once again?

It’ll take three rings and a rose to unite these would-be lovers, this time forever.
