Captain of Nara’s Heart
Nara knew she was taking a risk with illegal trading. Sure enough, she’s been arrested, caged—and will be auctioned as a sex slave. One look at the scary alien buyers and she frantically makes a deal, agreeing to be sold to Captain Vellar, who turns out to be large, sexy and seriously in heat. Offering her body to the captain is a given…but Nara didn’t expect to lose her heart in the process.
A highly skilled operative, Grace has been trained to track, fight and kill paranormal creatures. Only after she’s in the clutches of her latest target, a devastatingly sexy dragon-shifter, does she discover betrayal in her ranks. Suddenly the hunter is the hunted. Grace will soon uncover her ex-agency’s horrific agenda—but not before seeking solace in all the pleasures of the flesh her new dragon ally has to offer.
Having finally realized his dream to own a ranch, Cord is ready for the next step—settling down with the perfect sub. And he’s found her in Fallon. A single glance from the smart, sultry beauty makes him hard, but abuse at the hands of her ex-Dom has kept Fallon away from the lifestyle she loves. Needs. It will take bondage, mind-blowing sex, a gentle hand and expert flogging for Cord to help her rediscover her favorite dangerous addition.
Having sworn off love, Kari Howard isn’t adverse to a little lust when a hot Highlander lands at her feet. Literally.

But she doesn’t expect Fin to shake her very foundation…or cherish her for who she is.
There cannot be good without evil, light without dark… At a seaside resort, lovers Sam and Anita meet a mysterious, heavily tattooed couple who refers them to Sinful Designs. The owner is a witch whose magical tattoos grant scorching, kinky sex beyond their wildest fantasies—but there’s a catch. Each successive tattoo comes with a darker and scarier curse. Sam and Anita can break the spells…but at what cost?
The long-awaited sequel to The Possession!
John Calder has everything most men would kill for—golden-Adonis looks, endless money, a steely reputation as a savvy businessman and beautiful women throwing themselves at his feet. Then he meets Shelli Rodgers, a quirky, klutzy Ph.D. student who takes John on an emotional and sensual journey, giving him the one thing he’s never attained—happiness.
This anthology has something for everyone. Space aliens, shape-shifting dragons, BDSM, time traveling Scottish warriors, witchy wantons, and good old-fashioned hunky rich guys. There's enough scorching sex to curl your toes and flutter your pulse for a week. Grab a tall glass of ice water before reading...that way you won't have to put the book down when your panties catch on fire!
Captain of Nara’s Heart By Laurann Dohner
Ah, the details, the glorious details. What would a trip to an alien planet with hunky aliens be like if we couldn’t see them? Laurann Dohner has created a world vibrant with color and imagination and shares that world with her readers through vivid and explicit descriptions. Sexy humanoid tearing clothes off our heroine (who has been drugged with an aphrodisiac)? Yep, she’s got that, too. And sex scenes so hot my ears burned! Ms. Dohner has packed a whole lot of punch into an anthology short story and I can’t wait for the next edition!
Dragon Heat By Mel Teshco
Benson and Grace have chemistry in spades, and the electricity between them lights up the pages. Romance, excitement, flying on a dragon’s back, this book has it all. The suspense and intrigue enhanced the romance without taking away from the seductive sex scenes. While the book was in third person, it was all from Grace’s point of view. I would have enjoyed getting in Benson’s head a little, too.
Dangerous Addiction By Desiree Holt
Ms. Holt has written a juicy short story about a Dom and a submissive masochist who have an instant connection. Can they overcome fears and past abuse in order to gain their own happily ever after? Steamy sex, willing surrender and a dominant male make this a titillating read.
Highland Tryst By Eliza Knight
Fun! Ms. Knight has written a story of a time traveling warrior whose life had seemed to be over. Given a second chance at life and love, Fin is determined to make the most of it.
The fact that magic is at work makes this short story almost believable and the chemistry between Fin and Kari make it thoroughly enjoyable. Hot sex, interesting conclusion, great read.
Tattoo Witch By Kathy Kulig
Wicked. Wanton. Wonderful! Good conquers evil, and the couple gets to keep the awesome additions to their sex life! Ms. Kulig has quite the imagination and thankfully, she shares the stimulating details with us! This short story is full of twists and surprises and kept me reading to the end.
The Addiction By Jaid Black
Talk about an emotional roller coaster! I laughed, I almost cried, I got hot and horny, and dang if I didn’t fall in love with John Calder! The women of the world love a tortured hero, and Shelli is no different. The chemistry between these two characters was sizzling and the plot was very believable. A fairytale story between the poor, struggling PhD and the rich, lonely businessman. Of course, this isn’t your mom’s Cinderella story... There’s way too much hot, electrifying sex for that!
