Meet the Author:



I'm a small town girl from GA. I enjoy getting into the zone and typing until my hands go numb. I like curling up under a blanket with coffee and reading when life allows me the time - especially when it's rainy outside. I love my family with all of my heart. I am fond of humor and laughter because I think it keeps us sane and grounded. I pride myself in being open minded: say what you want to say, be who you want to be. Just don't be mean, rude or a bully - because then you'll see my Hulk side.

Book Information:

Undesired Lust (Mason Lynch)

Reckless Beat Series Book 3.0

by Eden Summers


Add Undesired Lust to Goodreads

About the Book:

They used to be the perfect team. 

Two years ago, songstress Sidney Higgins ruined her life by sleeping with not one, but two of the famous Reckless Beat men, Mason Lynch and Sean Taiden. Their night of intimate celebration turned into a worldwide sensation when the video Mason vowed to keep private was uploaded to the internet, destroying her squeaky-clean reputation and turning the world against her. Now she’s broken and left without hope, trying to find the one thing that can get her back on her feet.

A mistake neither one of them is willing to forgive. 

When the sex tape went viral and his best friends held him accountable, Mason bore the stigma of asshole with pride. Now, bitterness has destroyed him, driving away his muse and making him worthless in the industry he loves. There’s only one option left to reclaim his creativity, but that would mean collaborating with a woman who wants to castrate him with a plastic knife.

A palpable chemistry even hate can’t diminish. 

Forced to work together, neither one of them is prepared for the undesired lust which immediately takes hold. The lies fade away, exposing the truth; however, it also awakens a threat from their past. The person responsible for tearing them apart is back to ensure they don’t rekindle a spark. With their safety in the balance, Sidney and Mason need to determine what they’re willing to risk to reclaim a relationship they wish they’d never lost.


Information/Purchase Links:



Read an Interview with Mason Lynch:

Name(s): 

Mason: Mason Lynch aka Mr. Fanfuckingtastic


Family: 

Mason: I have a remarkably annoying sister, Toni. And my mother is as harmless and annoying as a moderately sized hemorrhoid. 

Physical appearance: 

Mason: Brown eyes, Blonde hair. 100% fuckable, if I do say so myself.


Why will reader sympathize with this person right away? 

Mason: Not at all. He’s arrogant, annoyingly so. But if you did a little deeper, you might expose someone different.


In your opinion, what is your best feature?

Mason: Just one? It’d be a shorter list if I mentioned my worst features.


Where do you live? 

Mason: I have two homes. A mansion in Richmond, Virginia where I can relax and spend time in the studio at my leisure. I also have a penthouse apartment in New York where all the craziness happens.


What one word best describes you? 

Mason: Perfect.


What were you like in high school? 

Mason: I was in the popular crowd. Always have been. 


What were your high school goals? 

Mason: Does popping cherries count?


What is your boss like? 

Mason: Leah Gorman, the Reckless Beat band manager is a pit bull. If my mother is a hemorrhoid, Leah is akin to a colonoscopy. She’s always up my ass, trying to expose all the shit she can in an effort to ‘protect me from myself’.


What are your bandmates like? 

Mason: My bandmates are my brothers. I love them with all my heart and want to kill them in the same breath.


What is something you had to learn that you hated? 

Mason: To be humble. I’m not very good at it.


Is there any sexual activity that you will not, under any circumstances, do? 

Mason: I will never, ever again tape myself having sex. 


Describe the perfect romantic partner for you. 

Mason: I’ve been told the best partner for me would be someone who could love me more than I love myself. I’m not sure I’ll ever find that woman.


What do you do when you are bored? 

Mason: I don’t have the luxury of boredom. If I’m not on tour, doing promo or with friends, I’m creating music for the next album. It never stops. Hopefully it never will.


Read an Interview with Author Eden Summers on Undesired Lust:

Hello and Welcome All!
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Eden Summers author of the Reckless Beat series.
Hi Eden, thank you for agreeing to this interview.

Eden: Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here.

What do you do when you are not writing?

Eden: Drink vodka…does that count?

Just joking…kinda.

In reality, I’m either doing motherly duties for my two boys, working part time or reading. Most of the time I’m writing though, or promoting J There isn’t a lot of spare time to do much else once the word target is hit for the week.


Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way wither growing up or as an adult?

Eden: There’s a long list of authors who have taught me innumerable things, from how to write, to what NOT to do when writing and promoting.

It’s a constant learning process. The industry is changing all the time with authors pushing new boundaries. 


If you could have given your characters one piece of advice before the opening pages of the book, what would it be and why?

Eden: To both Sidney and Mason — forgive and forget. Suck it up. Deal with it. Move on…Remember a condom!

But if I told them that beforehand we wouldn’t have Undesired Lust ;)


What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

Eden: Both protagonists are song writers, so I had a great deal of fun writing lyrics. Mason’s muse plays with him throughout Undesired Lust. You get to see the snippets that are thrown into his head at any given time. And there are also a few verses from a humorous song Sidney put together on the spot, which is dedicated to Mason’s womanizing ways.


Which of your prior characters would you most/least likely invite to dinner and why?

Eden: I’m always going to be a sucker for Blake from Passionate Addiction—tattooed, damaged and big-hearted—he’s my go-to guy. I’d love to sit down with him and let him know just how proud I am of him.

There may also be the need to swipe all the food from the table and have my wicked way with his inked body too. 


Thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to take part in this interview.

Eden: Thank you for having me. I hope you all enjoy my rockers.

Meet Opal:



Hi. I'm Opal Carew, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. I write erotic romance for St. Martin's Press and Samhain Publishing, and I self-publish stories. I also write romance as Amber Carew.

So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a female character who is growing and evolving - questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. My stories usually include menage a trois. It is great fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes... or more.

These aren't women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation - something exciting and erotic - but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back - of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves - and we don't follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.

#Giveaway ~ Behind the Tears (Behind the Lives Series, Book #2) by Marita A. Hansen

To trust is to get hurt, to be loved could end in death. 


About Behind the Tears:

To trust is to get hurt, to be loved could end in death. 

Everyone sees Ash as the toughest of the Rata brothers, the tall, tattooed man who is untouchable. But not many know of his past, of a tormented youth, which almost saw him take his own life. For ten years he's lived with the nightmares of his stepfather raping him, and how it destroyed his family. Further tormented by his first love leaving him, he tries to move forward with his new partner Beth, but is unable to open up to her, his past continuing to eat away at his soul. 

Beth knows Ash is keeping her in the dark, and every word he doesn't say, every secret he keeps, pushes her further into his brother's arms, someone who doesn't understand boundaries, a trait that has given Dante a wild reputation: the man every woman wants to bed. Hedonistic and uncontrollable, Dante desires Beth to the point of madness, his bipolar condition worsening with the stress of his hidden desires. He wants to control her, to take her, but he is deeply reliant on Ash, and like his brother, he hides his true nature. On the outside he shows a confident swagger that gets him the attention of both sexes, but on the inside all he wants is one woman who sees him as more than a sexual object. 

Sledge, the youngest of the three Rata brothers, finds himself in a different situation, dealing with the affections of his best friend: Beth's brother Corey. Diagnosed with cancer, Corey wants Sledge more than life itself, even though he believes Sledge is homophobic and would find him disgusting if he confessed his love. But when another man shows interest in Corey, Sledge's jealousy eats away at him, and makes him reassess his sexuality, and whether he could be more than a friend to Corey - whether he could be his lover. 

As the Rata family's love life is thrown into tangles, the brothers' stepfather escapes from prison with one thing on his mind: To get Ash once again. Someone he will kill for - and has killed for. 

Author's Note: Book 2 has different main characters from book 1. Due to this, you don't need to read book 1 to understand this story. Book 2 is more dark romance and family drama, while book one is street lit and social realism. Book 3 continues directly on from Book 2. (R-18)

Too many secrets... When Beth receives potentially life-changing news that could ruin her future, she decides to keep it a secret from Dante, the man she hopes to marry. But Dante has his own problems as his deepest and darkest secret is revealed when someone from his childhood reappears, a secret so disturbing that it could unravel what’s left of his already unstable mind. 

Beth’s brother Corey struggles to keep his relationship with Dante’s brother a secret, scared his father will split them apart. But it’s his sister he has the most to fear from, when Beth takes advantage of his boyfriend’s vulnerable condition.

Amazon US / UK

About Behind the Scenes:

WARNING: Rated R18. Contains sexually explicit content, both M/F & M/M. 

Dante Rata learns what’s Behind the Lens in this explosive sequel to Behind the Tears. Dante has a problem with sex – he gets way too much of it. Women want him, force themselves upon him, fight each other to get into his bed, and this ripped to the bones sex god even attracts male admirers. But when Dante discovers hidden cameras in his bedroom, he soon learns his sexual prowess is famous and the women who have been throwing themselves at him are porn actresses, paid to trick him into performing for the financial gain of an underground pornography ring - an organization who forces people into sexual slavery. Dante’s efforts to outwit Ant Torres, the porn-ring’s instigator, ends with Dante trapped into performing live for his fans; with the threat of death to his loved ones if he doesn’t. 

Dante’s brother, Sledge, also has a problem with sex – but with the same-sex. He finds himself attracted to Corey, his best mate. After Sledge is told devastating news about his family, he falls into Corey’s bed, taking him as a lover. Ashamed of what he has done, Sledge tries to hide the relationship from his family and friends, something which makes Corey feel like a dirty little secret. When he finds Sledge talking to a pair of females at a party, he flies into a jealous rage, outing Sledge in front of everyone. Humiliated, Sledge runs out on Corey, which inadvertently leads Corey to Torres’s bed, where he is made to perform for the camera. When Corey is dropped off at home, drugged and traumatized, Sledge learns about the pornography ring and the danger his brother is in. Intent on revenge as well as saving his brother, he sets out to bring down Torres, along with his crime syndicate anyway he can – whether it takes him with it or not.
