Everything Forbidden (Albright Sisters #1) by Jess Michaels

Everything Forbidden (Albright Sisters #1) by Jess Michaels

5 stars with a caveat To say I enjoyed Everything Forbidden is an understatement! Not only was this book an erotic historical romance with an abundance of steamy, provocative, and erotic love scenes, but it also contained a hero and heroine who were wonderfully developed, intriguing, and full of depth and charm. A rarity for an erotica. While the plot may have taken huge liberties within the book’s time frame, was not particularly original, and bit clichéd–the hero proposes a temporary sexual agreement in exchange for helping the heroine’s family avoid social and financial ruin–I still found this story enthralling, tantalizing, and wonderfully written. Although I loved the hero, Ethan, and found […]

The Devil’s Match (The Devil DeVere #4) by Victoria Vane

The Devil’s Match (The Devil DeVere #4) by Victoria Vane

5 DeVere-ly Delicious Stars!!! The Devil’s Match set me on FIRE!! Diana is perfect “match” for this Devil in every sense of the word. She is the one who lights the flame that IGNITES DeVere’s passion.  Ludovic is wicked, smug, indulges too much, and is devilishly delicious!! BUT, what I love about him most is deep down, he’s a good man, takes care of the ones he loves, no matter the cost to him. His ego might be inflated ten-fold, but we come to see, that underneath it all is a man who’s suffered his fair share of pain and shame. I love Diana’s strength, but DeVere has cracked her resolve and she is defenseless against […]

How To Kill A Rock Star by Tiffanie DeBartolo

How To Kill A Rock Star by Tiffanie DeBartolo

Genre: Contemporary Romance Heat Barometer: 3 out of 5 stars I wanted to rename this book How to Kill Splage with 15% of the story left…I think it made my heart stop and I felt totally lost… I mean WHOA I was scared how it was going to end. Let me just say that EVERY decision that Eliza and Paul made was wrong. It was crazy because they had such passion about their music and love for each other that they would contemplate and make decisions that they thought was the best for everyone instead of just for themselves and it seemed like they couldn’t catch a break. Why did I […]

Sweet, Sexy, Scorching Blog Hop: Karen Erickson

Karen Erickson I’ve always loved the written word. From being one of the best readers in my kindergarten class to penning romantic stories that never ended about my favorite band members (Duran Duran!) in high school, I always had a feeling I wanted to write. It just took me a while to seriously pursue it. With the birth of my third child came a realization – it’s one thing to talk about writing a book, another thing entirely to do it. So I decided to go for it and in 2005 I began my pursuit in writing toward publication. After completing a few clunkers that should never see the light of […]
