Review | It Started with A Scandal by Julie Anne Long

4.5/5 Stars | Hot Steam Intelligent, intimate and intensely passionate, upstairs and downstairs collide and combust in this superbly written and divinely sensual, second-chance romance. Undoubtedly one of virtuoso author Julie Anne Long’s finest novels to date, Elise and Philippe’s heavenly tale delivers this spring’s most stirring, satisfying and swoon-worthy escape. Proud, pragmatic, fierce and fiery, Elise Fountain is a shinning heroine whose inspiring wit, compassion and understated beauty captured my heart. She’s an endearing character whose sharp and spirited personality, like her raven curls, are barely restrained. I delighted in reading her lovely unraveling from attempted prim and proper housekeeper to wonderfully wanton and throughly worshipped woman. And luscious Lord Philippe Lavay? Ooh la la! Il est magnifique! From the moment we meet him, battered and brooding—with shards of porcelain beneath his hessians—this prickly prince’s lethal appeal is nothing sort of ruinous. Imposing, charming and deliciously disarming, Philippe is…

Sinful Rewards 10 – First Excerpt

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post. This is the first sexy excerpt from Sinful Rewards 10 (releasing April 14th). *** I tilt my chin upward, silently asking for a kiss, and he obliges, covering my lips with his, pillaging my mouth. Our tongues tangle and twist, dancing to the rhythm of our bodies, and the bond between us tightens, every encounter tying us together, tiny threads of emotion fusing our two souls into one. It’s beautiful and scary as hell. Losing him would devastate me, damaging me more than my dad’s abandonment, more than any past betrayal, yet I can’t close my heart to Hawke, can’t deny him anything. All I can do is give him a reason to live, to be as cautious as I am. I lick his…
