Read an Excerpt:

The first time I heard about The Harem Club was from my friend Amy, and later on, though she never admitted anything, I became certain she was in on it somehow. We were out for girls’ drinks and our other friend, Merrell, was talking about this supper club she’d gone to with her fiancé — some invite-only affair where a five-star chef took over the kitchen at someone’s home and everyone paid into the pot and was rewarded with whatever the chef felt like making. Merrell was rhapsodizing at length about the potato soufflé when Amy chimed in and said she’d heard of another sort of invite-only club that was rumored to have popped up in our town.
“It’s called The Harem Club,” she whispered, glancing around conspiratorially before delivering the details. It was set in some wealthy fellow’s gorgeous, Moroccan-themed home. Everyone was assigned a role upon arrival and you were not supposed to break character. “There are slaves and everything,” she explained, “and depending on what role you get, you might have sex with multiple people.”
“So basically, a sex club,” pronounced Merrell, unimpressed.
Amy shrugged. “Yeah, but better than that, since it’s exclusive. They don’t hand those invites out to just anyone.”
“Well, I think it sounds creepy,” Merrell said.
Amy smirked. “You thought speed-dating sounded creepy, too.And Internet dating.”
I laughed now. It was true. Merrell was at her most comfortable on her own couch watching Netflix and eating ice cream — even coaxing her out for girls’ drinks was something of a feat. Luckily for her, she was engaged to a man who was equally enamored of both her and her couch. Amy and I had yet to find ourselves matched with anyone quite so suitable.
And not for lack of trying, as I frequently (and painfully) was reminded. For example, now: “How’s the divorced life treating you these days, anyway?” inquired Amy.
I shrugged, maybe grunted a little — it was not my favorite line of questioning. Holt and I had been split for just over a year and I was starting to feel self-conscious over my failure to “get back in the game,” as people forever insisted on calling it. Quite honestly, it was the sex that was deterring me. Not because I didn’t want it — on the contrary, I was very much aware of how much I did want it, sometimes at very inconvenient moments indeed.
But I’d married Holt when I was just twenty-two, after dating him all through college, which meant I’d been sitting smugly on the sidelines for more than a decade as my friends reported back about the triumphs and humiliations of dating and sex in their twenties.
Now that I was out there solo, I was afraid … well, I was afraid maybe I’d missed something. I played out dates in my imagination sometimes, and each time, as I arrived at the moment where our clothes were off, the whole fantasy turned into some kind of anxiety-dream scenario, like showing up for school only to learn it was the final exam that day and I had never attended a single other class.
I knew this was a little crazy — or at least I was afraid it might sound that way. Which was why I preferred to offer vague excuses for my failure to date, things along the lines of, “I just don’t feel ready yet.” But my friends were growing impatient — Amy, in particular. She kept threatening to set me up.
“You can’t hold out forever,” she scolded now. “Or if you can, you’d better introduce me to your toy chest, ’cause the stuff in mine just isn’t as good as the real thing.”
I blushed and hastily downed the rest of my drink.

Cover Reveal: Vegas Miracle by Liz Crowe

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for:

Vegas Miracle by Liz Crowe



Book Information:

 Genre: MMF Ménage Romance 

Re-Release Date: May 5, 2015 

Host: DRC Promotions


About Vegas Miracle:

Ryan and Grace Sullivan have all the outward indications of a happy life: money, success, an undeniable physical attraction that quickly evolved from whirlwind relationship to marriage. But lately, Ryan's become moody and distant. As their relationship starts to crumble, Ryan discovers something about himself he can't admit just as Grace realizes the young man she encounters at an invitation only party, Henri Christophe, a celebrity chef with the most successful restaurant in Las Vegas, is her husband's lover. But Henri holds a secret himself. He wants to be more to both of them. As they attempt to make their unconventional arrangement work, Ryan's deep-seated fear of relationship failure continues to thwart everyone's happiness. When he finally walks away instead of confronting the emotional connection the trio shares, he returns to find their lives flipped inside out. A sought after hotel and resort consultant, Ryan has yet to meet a problem he couldn't solve. But when it comes to his own heart, he may be too late. 


Read an Excerpt:

Her skin prickled with exposure to the cool air as his strong hands moved slowly up both legs. Henri focused on her hips, kneading out tension she always held there. But the innocent nature of the moment was long gone. The sensation of his strong hands on her made her want to lift up and expose herself to him. If he didn’t watch it she was going to come right here against this silly massage table. "Let’s turn you over," he said as he held the blanket up modestly, which made her chuckle. He'd been close enough to finger her a few minutes ago and she wouldn’t have stopped him either so why the sudden propriety now? She lay on her back as he sat next to her and took her arm on his lap, working through her shoulder tightness. When her fingers brushed up against what was an unmistakable hard on under his shorts, she gasped and pulled her hand away. "Sorry," she whispered, mortified. "It’s okay." Henri put her arm back in place so he could continue to work his way down to her hand, which he caressed finger by finger and into her palm in a way that caused her breathing to quicken. When he closed his lips over her index finger and sucked, her entire body zinged in response. He paid the same careful attention to each digit and ended with a light lick to the center of her palm, nearly sending her over the edge. She was panting by the time he switched over to her other arm. She left her hand in his lap and brushed her fingers ever so lightly across the silky fabric of his shorts, just to see how he’d react. He shifted closer to allow her more contact and she stroked his full length twice before he took that hand to give it the same thorough and firm caress. By the time he closed his lips over her finger again, nothing prepared her for the fire of emotion and pure need his lips and tongue ignited. Henri placed her arms under the blanket and passed a very light hand over her nipples, now hard buds of flesh poking through the fabric. Her breath came in shaky gasps by the time he uncovered one leg and propped her foot against his naked chest. She gaped at his amazing muscle definition as he bent her knee to flex her hip. With each bend, his arm came in direct contact with her bare pussy. Henri kneaded the flesh of her thigh before moving down to rub each toe, then the sole of her foot, which sent those same zinging, nerve rattling sensation straight up to the top her head. She stretched her hands over her head and allowed the blanket to fall away. Eyes closed, she reveled in the pure sensation of his touch. By the time he switched over to her other leg and placed her foot on his chest again, a low moaning sound had begun in in her throat and had to force herself not to grab him and pull him on top of her. He stretched her knee towards her chest. "You're very flexible, yes?" His voice was hoarse. "Yes," she breathed, tilting her hips up to make contact with his arm. The last time he bent her knee she felt his tongue flick her nipple. She realized he was pulling the sheet off her completely and she gave no resistance. Raising her arms up over her head again, Grace stretched like a cat in the windowsill. She heard him make a sound deep in his throat before he ran his strong hands from her shoulders down to her nipples and across her stomach. He stopped to knead her hips once more then kept moving down her thighs to her calves and then to her sensitized feet. She arched up and gasped as she felt his tongue again, this time right on her clit. He teased her flesh then sucked briefly before standing up. Grace kept her eyes closed, her body was on fire, every nerve ending crying out for more. But he seemed to be done so she struggled up to a seated position. ""Would you like a bit more? An internal massage, perhaps?" "Yes," she nearly yelled out then felt herself blush. “I mean…that’s sort of a lame line, though.” He chuckled. “I’ll work on my lines a little, after this.” His low, accented voice made her shiver.

Cover Reveal & #Giveaway: What Janie Wants by Rhenna Morgan


Clothing optional…

Janie McAlister should have known better than to trust her quirky sister’s taste in resorts. Instead of thatched-roof huts and designer pools overlooking the ocean, she’s landed at the one seventies throwback in the Riviera Maya with an open door nudity policy. No way is she going à la natural in public. And she’s sure not entertaining the advances of the bold young man with the delicious body daring her to do exactly that…and so much more.

Well, hello, Ms. McAlister…

Zade Painel’s a man on a mission—grab some much needed R&R at Gypsy Cove, and figure out how to reclaim his boudoir photography business. He never thought the answer would come in the form of a curvy, forty-year-old redhead and an accidental knee to the ‘nads, but Janie proves to be a force of nature with a penchant for fixing things. She’s also sexy as hell. One way or another, he’s going to help her see just that. And if he plays his cards right, it'll be a heavenly hands-on approach that lasts way past seven days in paradise.


What Janie Wants

Publication Date: June 22, 2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Read an Excerpt:

Told in Janie’s Point of View:

Janie froze. Every muscle locked up and her breath hitched. The only thing actively working was her heart, which after its initial stumble, had taken off at a gallop. 

“…make damned sure the only thing you can do is feel.” 

So tempting. So terribly tempting. 

The shadows around him accented the sharp angles of his jaw and nose, and his voice dropped to a grumble. “Talk to me, Janie.” 

And tell him what? That she wanted what he wanted as bad as he did, but she was terrified to give the green light? That she wasn’t sure she could take the disappointment in his eyes if things got serious and he saw what a quality sundress could hide? “What do you want to know?” 

“Tell me what you want.” 

Touch. Passion. Contact. Skin. It all rushed in at once, clogging her throat and seizing her thoughts. 

“One word.” His hand tightened on his lap, not so subtly gripping what looked to be a powerful erection. “One thing at a time.” 

She swallowed and tried to catch her breath. The request leapt to her tongue, ready for launch. Damn it to hell, she was a living, breathing human, not some freakish deviant. Why couldn’t she say what she wanted? Own it. It was one night. One chance she may never get again. “A kiss.” 

He stared at her. Quiet. 

Her lungs burned, the air so thick she could barely breathe. 

He stood and padded to her side of the bed. 

With every step, her heartbeat surged a notch. Her thighs pressed so tight together it was a wonder the bed didn’t shake. 

He unhooked his watch. One of those chunky ones her son had begged her for two Christmas’ ago. Somehow the silver looked right on Zade. Manly. Effortless and stylish without being overblown. 

It clunked against the nightstand as he sat it aside. 

He’d rolled his sleeves up, tanned skin and prominent veins peeking from beneath the crisp blue fabric. The top two buttons of his shirt were open, leaving his neck on display. And his eyes, bright blue and bold as the hottest flame, framed by his loose blond bangs. 

He scanned her body stretched out on the bed, put a knee to the mattress, and straddled her thighs. Rooting his hands on either side of her head, he held his body over hers, yet not touching. “A kiss.” He dipped closer. Slow, inhaling deep. “Want to point out, you didn’t put any restrictions on your request.” 

He traced the line of her lips with his own, close enough to tickle and tease, but not nearly enough to give her what she craved. “You didn’t say how…” His warm breath fluttered against her face. “…or where.” He licked her lower lip and lifted his gaze to hers. “I’ll take that to mean I get to taste all of you.”

Rhenna Morgan writes for the same reason she reads—to escape reality. Yes, her life rocks—two beautiful little girls, a great husband, a steady job, and the kind of friends that would take you out back if you hurt her. But, like most women, she’s got obligations stacked tight from dusk to dawn. So, when the world gets her down, she slips into something…less realistic. Romance is a must. So is a steamy romp (or four). Nothing thrills her more than the fantasy of new, exciting worlds, strong, intuitive men, and the sigh of, “Oh if only that could happen to me.” So, if you’re picking up one of her books, expect portals into alternate realms and men who’ll fight to keep the women they want. Romantic escape for the women who need it.

Military, Romantic Suspense Novel Spotlight ~ Hunter (The Bang Shift Series) by Mandy Harbin


Welcome to the blog tour for ~

Hunter (The Bang Shift Series)

By Mandy Harbin

Genre: Military, Romantic Suspense


About Hunter:

After finally getting out of her disastrous relationship, Maya Carmichael has sworn off all bad boys. Sure they’re hot. The attitude? No thanks. But when her car is vandalized while on a night out with her roommate, she realizes her ex is truly sadistic. Her friend insists they lay low for a few days while the cops do their thing. Unfortunately her temporary haven will throw her in the path of another bad boy. Oh, she’s heard stories about her roommate’s brother, Hunter, and he’s just the type she wants to avoid. Until she sees him … and all good intentions fly out of her busted windshield.

Hunter Anderson might be the easygoing jokester within the Bang Shift crew—the small Arkansas town’s mechanics and the government’s secret mercenaries—but underneath his lighthearted exterior lurks demons of a past he’d love nothing more than to forget. Working on cars and taking the occasional contracted mission help, but he fears nothing will stop his past from coming back to haunt him. No one has tried penetrating the façade to get to the real person below. No one, until Maya.

The attraction is undeniable, but there’s more to Hunter than he can ever let on, and for Maya, this hot distraction makes it easy to forget the real danger she’s in. It has nothing to do with losing her heart to him.

When really it has everything to do with just that.

Historical Romance Series Spotlight: The Gemina Series by Tamara McHatton and Lysa Demorest


Book Information:

The Gemina Series

by Tamara McHatton and Lysa Demorest

Genre: Historical Romance

About the Series:

The Thirteenth Twin Legion, known as a Gemina, became a key force in the Roman Empire's conquest of Gaul and Germania. The renowned commanders, Axilla and Ocella, must choose to defend their home or fight for the Romans. Death and tragedy lead the brothers-in-arms to far different fates that will be the ultimate test of their bond for each other and their loyalties.

The rebellion rises against the military and politicians with merchants and villagers caught between two nations. Brothers, lovers, and families, swept into the rising tides of war, divide their allegiance. Trading routes turn into spy rings while the heroes decide where their futures lie. Do they live in the freedom of rural Germania or submit to the tyranny of a Roman emperor?

Legends emerge when citizens challenge the threat to their land and their way of life. For a legion that once knelt to an emperor, warrior and merchant alike must decide who earns their loyalty as their ranks grow in the fire of rebellion. Love and honor will bring an empire to its knees when heroes change the fate of Germania.



About Gemina ~ The Lost Legionnaries:

Axilla goes against orders to find out the fate of his outpost, only to realize he has made the greatest sacrifice of his life. His existence now rests on his skills to survive his captivity as a Roman gladiator.

Corvina, the scarred protector of their outpost, hides her face -- and her failures -- behind a scarf. Powerful forces put her in the center of Rome, perfectly placed to spy, giving her one more chance to safeguard her people and the old Roman ways.

It falls to the lost Roman legionnaire and the scarfed woman to orchestrate the heroic plan of saving an empire from itself. They coordinate a daring escape and set the challenge on the very steps of Rome's aristocracy. A fight to inspire a rebellion, a fight to inspire a revolution.

His rescue from a battle-torn town leads him on a journey through Germania and Rome with Katja Kaufer to lead the way. He is a forgotten man displaced in a rebellion that threatens the very lives of the people who rescued him.

The web of rising suspicions entangles Katja's way of life as a traveling merchant, when Cordus's past brings the leaders of the rebellion, Axilla and Corvina, to their camp. Now, she has to decide if the safety of the people she cares about is worth the protection of one man.
