The third book in a deliciously sexy series from USA Today bestselling and RITA award winning author Caroline Linden, in which an utterly shocking book–Ffty Shades of Grey for the Regency era– has all of London talking and gives more than one young miss a mind for scandal.   Penelope Weston does not like Benedict Lennox, Lord Atherton.

Sinful Rewards 11 – Lona’s Dress

Lona is always impeccably dressed and her appearance in Sinful Rewards 11 is no exception. Here’s a snippet… *** I dress in black G-string panties and the red silk robe Cyndi forced me to wear to the English department’s senior year “pimps and hoes” party two years ago. The garment is poorly crafted and shamefully slutastic, but I need something I can remove without mussing my hair. This robe is the best choice. The doorbell rings. A black ball of fur streaks across the floor, dashing into the bedroom I share with Hawke. “It’s Lona, Gisele,” I tell my nervous cat. “She’s a friend.” I gaze through the peephole and inwardly groan, wondering if Lona will be a friend for long. The escort is her usual immaculate self, perfect hair, perfect makeup, and from what I see, perfectly dressed. I open the door and my trepidation increases. She’s wearing a…

Need Me (Broke and Beautiful #2) by Tessa Bailey

Well now. That was an interesting romance. Older hero, younger heroine (by a nice sized clip)…a teacher and his student…big city guy and a girl from Kentucky. Need Me was a little edgy but oh it worked. It so worked. The quick of it is that Honey…she’s crushing hard on her English professor. And she’s ready to start her seduction of this tweed and glasses rocking man. An accidental encounter locked in a cabinet, finding out they’re friends know each other and, well, attraction through the roof despite the taboo-ness of it all and sparks…they are a flying.

A visit with Jennifer Bernard, author of All of Me

It is my extreme pleasure to welcome the lovely Jennifer Bernard today. Jennifer’s new book, All of Me, is out today!! Pick it up and get to know the characters from her brand new series – Love Between the Bases.Take it away, Jennifer! Let’s talk names! Maybe it’s because I was given the most common name of my generation – Jennifer – but I’m obsessed with names. In my 3rd grade science unit, I named my mealworms Genevieve, Colette and Marie-Claire, as if they’d just stepped off the plane from Paris. Now that I’m an author, I spend a ridiculous amount of time figuring out my characters’ names. Since people don’t name themselves, I actually spend time thinking about my heroes’ parents, and why they would choose one name over another. Is it a family name? Something more fanciful? What’s its meaning? What does it represent to the proud new…

Second Excerpt For Sinful Rewards 12

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. Last week, I shared the first snippet of the first scene. Here’s a continuation of that first scene from Sinful Rewards 12 (releasing June 16th) *** Gisele sits in front of the closed bedroom door and meows and meows and meows. Christ. My headache fading, I drag my sorry ass out of bed and clomp to the door, opening it. The cat walks between my bare legs in a figure eight pattern, rubbing against my skin. Her feline massage is soothing yet confusing, her purpose undecipherable. She then flicks her tail and strides across the bedroom. I stare at her. “You wanted out.” Gisele doesn’t look back at me, doesn’t offer even a halfhearted cat apology. She parks her tail by the window and…
