Editor – Intoxication line: Erotic Romance
For those of you who love erotic paranormal romance with kink, we have
something special for you! Out today at Sizzler Editions, Bound After
This awesome anthology features novellas by Bonni Sansom, Margie Church
and yours truly. Three tales of otherworldly romance and kink!
The ties that bind are not always visible, the universal concept of
love, not always seen clearly through the eyes of the wandering
traveler. This is no truer than in the case of Solan, a warrior with an
unknown destiny in “Finding Eternity.” Wounded on the battlefield, his
rescue by a vampire who yearns to be his proves to be too much for a man
with no concept of ownership. “Cream on the Crop” is a rather tongue
in cheek, yet powerful story about a strong willed woman of privilege
making her own way in the country until a specter appears and shows her
carnal delights through submission of more than just will. Demanding
blood lust fuels our characters in “Hunter’s Bounty,” a tale of rescue
featuring a very unlikely type of shape-shifter as love interest for our
vampire heroine. Each tale weaves the intricacies of kinky sensuality,
sensual romance and story enough to keep you turning the pages of this
hot collection. Perhaps you, too, may find yourself lucky enough to be
Bound After Midnight…

The Bad Boy of Romance
Agent Saritza Hernandez and I discussed expanding my reach into contemporary worlds and I thought what better way than to refresh how humans process emotions by reading through the 20 or so BLAZE novels I’ve collected.
Starting off with Every Breath You Take… By Hope Tarr was a good call.
His job is to watch over her. Every tempting inch… Scientist Alex is in over her head. It’s bad enough that a research trip to Belize has put her in danger. Then she finds out that her hired protector is ex-FBI agent Cole – the man who’d betrayed her five years ago. Re-appearing in Alex’s life is the biggest risk Cole’s ever taken. Once his undercover job forced him to abandon her. Now he has the chance to redeem himself – one scorching touch at a time. But first he must convince Alex that the safest place for her is in his bed…
Honestly, the fast pace of the book kept me turning pages to find out more about these two different characters and how she played out a typical plot. The heart ache of these two characters and what transpired between them made me root more for Cole than anything else. When you know you’ve let the right one go because you were stupid…
I can relate.
Added to my GoodReads shelf, an easy 4 stars.
But even an author needs downtime and what better way to spend it than with an escape?
On my reading list, the following titles from my local library:
Starfire – Kate Douglas. I recently picked up DemonFire, the first in her new series NOT Chanku related and realized I’m three books behind LOL! A quick search of her site btw revealed just how far behind I am with her work, but that’s the life of a writer! I was fortunate enough to meet her back in ’08 at RWA Nationals!
Next up would be Cynthia Eden. I discovered her as a reviewer for Coffee Time Romance several years back and became hooked instantly. Not only is she a hell of a storyteller, with heat and passion and romance to boot, but she’s a really sweet author! Have yet to meet her, but Never Cry Wolf has me only 40 pages in and hooked. Simone is a badass, there’s no doubt in my mind and I’m sure we share some of the same inspirations for heroes in our stories. So far the plot keeps getting deeper and I can’t put the book down, except that I can’t smoke cigars and read outside due to the darkness and cold!
The sex scenes…well I remember reviewing her earlier work through Kensington and them being delicious, I think you’ll enjoy the new ones too I hope I can finish this book this weekend.
For some time my primary publisher Sizzler Editions and I have been talking about putting out my paranormal stories in one collection. This would include Wolf Magic, Dark Traders, The Claiming, and I think a few more smaller pieces. Finally, it’s up on the schedule to be released hopefully in the next month.
So, you get some cover eye candy, thanks to the lovely and talented Marianne LaCroix
I will share excerpts from the various stories soon, or link back to them if they’re up on this site already!
Reading erotica can be appealing for a number of reasons, some obvious and some a bit subtler. Of course, for starters, if you’re reading a novel or story that involves a good bit of sexual content, you don’t want to skip out on the sex, and you definitely don’t want it to lack punch! Additionally, for many people, reading erotica can be exciting in and of itself, whether or not it is in the context of a story. But did you know realize that a healthy dose of erotica content can actually help to indirectly spice up your own sex life, and not just your imagination?
One of the main reasons that erotica excites people is that it shows them sexual scenarios and acts that they may never have tried or participated in. Simply put, the sex scenes in erotica stories often represent something new. This means that in addition to being a source of entertainment, erotica can also be a source of ideas for things to put into practice in your own life. For example, let’s say you read a sex scene that involves the use of sex toys that you’ve never tried, or perhaps never even heard of. Sound interesting?
If something like this grabs your attention, you have the option of putting it into practice instead of leaving it on the page. Using the example of becoming excited after reading a scene involving sex toys, you can pay a quick visit to a sex shop online like Adam & Eve and see if they have any of the toys or accessories used in the scene you liked. If you do find the toys that interested you, you are just a few quick clicks away from ordering them for yourself, and then you’ll have all kinds of possibilities.
Of course – particularly if you are in a steady relationship – you will want to discuss these things with your partner before acting on them. Sex toys can be a bit shocking to spring on someone without first discussing it! However, this is just one example of a quick and easy way to put your erotica-based fantasies into real-life practice. When you read something in a book or story, it’s tempting to separate it from reality and enjoy it purely as fiction. However, don’t forget that you can always take your erotica stories as suggestions, in addition to entertainment. Don’t be afraid to try some of the new things you read about – doing is usually even better than reading!
