Perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, the Club Sin series continues with Freed, a wicked, wild eBook original novel from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.

Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.

Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.

Freed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Release date: February 10, 2014

 

Bared is a seductively haunting tale of control and surrender that will tantalize existing fans of the series, while enticing new readers into the passionate world of Club Sin.” ~Eliza Gayle, New York Times bestselling author of SUBMISSIVE BEAUTY

In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Stacey Kennedy returns to Club Sin with another wicked and wild tale of submission, seduction, and love.

At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.

Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.

Bared is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Give-Me-Love Cover

My Thoughts on Give Me Love:
This book continues Vivienne Callahan’s story. This is a series that must be read in order and you will understand that if you start by reading this 4th book in the series. Otherwise, things may not make sense or it may have you thinking that you’re not reading the story correctly.

Good versus evil is a strong theme in the series. This particular book is a story of discovery. The three previous stories all build up to this point. If you haven’t purchased any of the books in this series yet, I think it would be best for you to purchase the set. This way you can read each book one right after the other.

Vivienne seems to always have to be looking over her shoulder because she has something that someone else wants. But having someone like Mikah who loves her and will do anything to protect her is very romantic. The sex is just one way they show their love for each other but I found that the rest of the story is what held my attention. It’s also a story that reads as if it were real – our author has made a series that seems very believable. As if anything is possible.

Zoey had me wishing that I had one of Vivienne’s special abilities. In a way it would be great to be able to sense things before they happen. But it can also come with lots of responsibility – I guess “ignorance is bliss” isn’t a bad thing.

This book has a happy ending that will have you smiling but in the back of your mind you think, “Is there more to come?” Or, is the reader left to finish what’s not resolved? I stopped over to the author’s web site but don’t see anything to indicate that there will be a 5th book so this is something that we will have to wait and see. In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy this series as much as I did. I have read two other books in this series and the only book I haven’t read yet which is Give Me Hope and I plan to change that and will post that review soon. In the meantime, here are the links if you would like to see my reviews of books one and three.

Give Me Desire
And if you find you liked this series, why not stop over to the author’s web site and see what else she has available.

joankilby PicAbout the Author:

When I’m not working on a book I can often be found sipping a latte at my local cafe and indulging my favorite past-time of people watching.

Growing up in Vancouver, Canada, I always wanted to be a writer. In university I took a detour to study marine biology. I worked as an environmental biologist for many years until the birth of my first child.

I loved staying at home with my kids because not only could I raise them myself but I could indulge my first love — writing. I soon realized story-telling was what I was always meant to do.

Twenty years later I’m still hooked on writing. I’ve published over twenty-five books with Harlequin. I’m now writing for Entangled Publishing and have a couple of self-publishing projects on the go.

I live in Melbourne, Australia, with my husband and three grown children. As well as writing and hanging out in cafes (Melbourne has the best coffee!) I go to the gym, walk my dog, cook, hike, garden, swim and read. I belong to Toastmasters Club and numerous writing organizations.

My Thoughts:
This author comes up with a very interesting project for this couple to work on. It makes you wonder that if a very creative author can come up with this idea why not anyone else. You also have to wonder if an author has ever copyrighted a thought such as this. This also shows how tough it is to sell your idea in order to get funding. Maybe our author is a fan of “Shark Tank”. Personally, I don’t think most of us could handle the pressure.

The story has some interesting turns for our couple. But what makes it more interesting is that Cassy isn’t the vulnerable one – it’s cute to watch. It’s just one more thing that I love about this author. In this instance, Joan has made Scott a geek who seems clueless when it comes to women and relationships. This is where either Joan has a very good imagination or did she find a subject to research and question. Scott just needed the right type of woman to straighten him out.

You can get this story read in just one day – if you have the time. I couldn’t think of the type of music that would be great to set the mood so I will leave that up to you. Your setting is also hard since it deals with technology. It’s a story that had me smiling – it’s nice to see that geeks can be good-looking, number one, and they can find love where they least expect it. I’m looking forward to reading more of Joan’s work.

Blurb:
He’s in the middle of the last thing he wanted… and the best thing to ever happen.

Ace paramedic Conner Dixon has sworn to never live with another woman after raising his four younger sisters. They have been giving him gray hair since they lost their father fifteen years ago. Now they’re all in love and Conner’s ready to retire– from worrying, fixing problems and cleaning up messes.

Of course, when his fellow paramedic, Gabrielle Evans, needs a place to stay after her apartment burns down, Conner can’t say no. But it’s no problem– Gabby’s just one of the guys.

Gabby’s penchant for poker and her ability to overhaul a transmission definitely make her different from Conner’s usual women. She also has no interest in getting involved with him. Conner’s crazy mix of family and friends is the last thing Gabby needs right now. She has her sights set on medical school in the fall and knows success depends on focus and commitment.

But within forty-eight hours of moving in, Gabby’s in the middle of a family crisis that could disprove all her I-don’t-need-anyone bluster and Conner’s in the middle of the last thing he wanted-a girl and all her stuff, all over his stuff. Still, the more she makes herself at home, the more he thinks that’s maybe exactly where her stuff should be. For good.

Warning: Contains a girl who thinks she wants to be just one of the guys, a guy who happily proves why that won’t work, and a very good reason to buy cinnamon roll icing-you know, other than for use on cinnamon rolls.

Erin Nicholas PicAuthor Bio:

I’ve been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber… they took my ‘happily ever after’ ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.

I’ve been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I’ll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father’s love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I’m sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.

But it wasn’t long until I started writing about true love and that’s where I’ve been ever since.

I’m so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.

My Thoughts:
Conner Dixon is a man of many talents. And he likes to display for the female population. Gabrielle Evans works alongside Conner. But she has other aspirations for what she wants to do with her life. Erin starts their story off with a very “cute” scene that takes place in the hospital. As I see this scene unfold, I find that I’ve missed Mac and Sara’s story but I can change that. But you don’t have to have read it in order to understand this story –- it can be read as a stand-alone.

What makes this a great page-turner, for me, is I want to see the woman who’s going to take down the man with the revolving door. It’s also great to see a woman that can hold her own when it comes to both the men in her family and at the poker table.

Conner and Gabrielle have a very important job that we rely on when tragedy happens. The good work of first responders/paramedics has been in the news quite a bit lately. And we see how things change when the job hits home for them personally. It’s the catalyst for how their relationship changes. At this point the reader sees Conner’s alpha come out and he’s confused.

There’s a sex scene where our couple first explore each other that’s going to make you flush if you read this out in public. Depending on age, you can always blame it on hot flashes. If it’s summertime, you can blame it on the heat. Other than that, you’ll have to use your imagination for why you have a flushed face.

You will be happy to note that this book just gets better as the pages go on. And the ending will have you smiling. It may also have you reminiscing about how you met your own significant other. I couldn’t find out if there is going to be a book six but if you stop over to Erin’s web site, you will see plenty of other books to read. Also, if you haven’t read the first five books in this series what a great incentive to get caught up. I have a feeling that Erin is an author you will want to follow.

Release Day Blast: Unnatural by J.A. Belfield

UnnRDBB

UNNATURAL RELEASES TODAY!

Unnatural

Unnatural. One word to sum up werewolf Kyle Larsen—his mood swings, abnormal body, and choice of female.

The first two, he blames on the vampire venom.

The third, though? No, feline shifter Brook Nicholls was all his doing—a female of whom the pack will never approve.

As part of the Coalition, an organisation with even stricter rules than the pack and a rigidly warped sense of responsibility, Brook comes with a whole lot of opposition of her own.

No wonder the two of them keep their relationship secret for as long as they can.

Now, distanced from his family by his own indiscretions, Kyle’s left to fight battles he’s unsure how to win—some of them even against his own pack.

Is one woman really so important that he’s willing to defy his Alpha for her?

If his heart has any say in the matter, the answer will be yes.

About Ava’s Wishes:

Ava Haines had big plans for her life. Her short-term goals included passing statistics (on the third try), graduating college on time, and securing a job in the art gallery on Main Street. Her long-term goal was to one day own an art gallery of her very own. Oh sure, she would someday like to fall in love and get married, but all of that was secondary to making sure her other goals were in line. Fellow student Max Wallis and esteemed photographer Thomas Malloy were just minor distractions she was more than capable of handling. She was entitled to a little fun once in a while, right? But as reality took a tumble, Ava began to wonder if she really was able to manage it all. Could all her wishes come true?

Excerpt:

Spoilt, selfish love, and drunken obsession – I did it all for him. It was a good a place to fall as any. And I’d fall a million times over for him, into him and with him. Sweat, tears and blood, my sweet confessions of beautiful lies. Hurt, lust and deadly defiance – I did it all for him. Eclectic, enigmatic and insufferable is what holds me to this world, to do it all for him. It’s a constant craving, aching and twisting inside -for him.
He is in my bloodstream, forever floating in my vision, an axiomatic high I burn for. When I inhale, it is for him. Defiance, is for him. At his touch I come alive, nothing else matters but that. He is the antidote to the forbidding Shadow disease growing inside of me. But for this kind of absolution there is no cure.
~ Eva. The Broken Diaries. ~
