Throwback Thursday...Book Edition

I read DARK PRINCE, the first book in the Dark series, by Christine Feehan when it was first released back in 1999, and I've been a huge fan of the author ever since. If she writes it, I'll buy it. Love her Ghost Walkers, Sea Haven and Sisters of the Heart series as well.

If you love paranormal romance and haven't tried this author yet, you are truly missing out on something special.




(Original 1999 cover)
BLURB:

Carpathians are an immortal race of beings with animal instincts. Every Carpathian male is drawn to his life mate: a Carpathian or human female able to provide the light to his darkness. Without her, the beast within slowly consumes the man until turning vampire is the only option.' Raven Whitney is a psychic who has used her gift to help the police track down a serial killer. Now she is determined to escape the glare of recent publicity for the peace and quiet of the Carpathian Mountains. Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky is the leader of his people but, as his ancient Carpathian race grows ever closer to extinction, he is close to giving in to the heavy weight of loneliness and despair. From the moment their minds touch, Raven and Mikhail form a connection. But there are those who incorrectly view all Carpathians as vampires, and are determined to give their extinction a helping hand.

Storm Stallion
by Kate Hill
Book 8 in the Horsemen Series

Blurb:

From the moment Ivan rescued Bala from the inferno that wiped out her village, he has been in love with her. Knowing the young widow's heart belongs to her husband who died from the Horseman Plague, he struggles to keep his passion for her a secret.

Bala is burdened by guilt over the lustful fantasies she's been having about the handsome Fighting Carrier. When he surprises them both by asking her to marry him, she accepts. With Ivan she enjoys a sexual freedom she has never experienced before. Despite their love for each other, their marriage is threatened by the shadow of her first husband.

Ivan and Bala realize they're meant to be together, but first they have to find their way back to each other.

Purchase Link:


The following excerpt from Storm Stallion is for readers 18 and over.


He paused and stared. Bala had filled their wooden tub with warm water. Flower petals floated on the surface, their scent wafting through the room. Bala, her dark hair piled on top of her head, sat in the tub. Water glistened on her smooth brown skin.

"She's at Jane's for the night," Bala said. "Hanna will be our guest tomorrow."

"Oh." Ivan moistened his lips. At the moment his brain wasn't comprehending much beyond the sight of her naked in the tub.

"The water is warm and there's room for two, if you'd like to join me." She cast him a flirty look

She didn't need to ask twice.

Ivan quickly shifted to Huform. The floor shuddered from the force of his change and he paused a moment, letting the momentary weakness pass before he walked to the tub and climbed in, facing Bala.

Smiling, she turned toward him and he drew her into his arms. He spread his legs and she settled between them, her smooth, wet back resting against his chest.

"This is a nice surprise," he said, kissing her shoulder. He gently rubbed her arms, then dropped his hands to caress her inner thighs.

"Yes it is. I hadn't expected you home this soon. I was preparing myself for you."

"Then I'm glad I got an early release."

"An early release?" She purred and reached behind her to clasp his cock. "We'll see about that."

"Really?" He chuckled and turned her to face him.

Bala smiled and straddled him. Their mouths met in a hungry kiss. Ivan kneaded her breasts and rolled the nipples between his thumbs and forefingers. He thrust his tongue into her mouth and she met every possessive stroke with enthusiasm that sent his heart pounding out of control.

Book of the Week--Sinful Rewards by Cynthia Sax is Sinfully Delightful

SINFUL REWARDS 1 is the first book in Cynthia Sax's new erotic serial with one book releasing per month until the full story of the love triangle between Belinda, Nicholas and Hawke unfolds.

Now, I'm not usually a big fan of serials or stories written in the first person, but I absolutely loved this book and am hooked on this author. Cynthia Sax is the queen of the erotic serial series.



BLURB:


Belinda "Bee" Carter is a good girl; at least, that's what she tells herself. And a good girl deserves a nice guy—just like the gorgeous and moody billionaire Nicolas Rainer. He is everything she wants in a man.

Or so she thinks, until she takes a look through her telescope and sees a naked, tattooed man on the balcony across the courtyard. Hawke is mysterious, the bad boy she knows will bring only heartbreak. He has been watching her, and that makes him all the more enticing.

But when a mysterious and anonymous text message dares her to do something bad, she must decide if she is really the good girl she has always claimed to be, or if she's willing to risk everything for her secret fantasy of being watched.

Is her mystery man the reclusive billionaire with a wild side or the darkly dangerous bad boy?



If you haven't already checked out The Seen Trilogy HE WATCHES ME, HE TOUCHES ME, and HE CLAIMS ME you really should. The pages practicallyl sizzle as you read them.

In the meantime, I'll be impatiently waiting for the next installment of the Sinful Rewards serial next month!

Throwback Thursday...Book Edition

SEDUCTION by Amanda Quick is one of the first books I read by this author. It took me a while to discover she wrote under other names--Jayne Ann Krentz, Jayne Castle, Stephanie James, Jayne Bentley, and Amanda Glass. I started searching for her books and discovered the world of series romances. Until then, I'd mostly read regular fiction and historical novels. Once I fell in love with romance novels there was no turning back. I've read thousands of books and now I write them.

So thank you Jayne Ann Krentz!

I love historical romance and Amanda Quick (and any other book this author writes) are automatic buys for me.



BLURB:


Townsfolk called him devil. For dark and enigmatic Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten. Some said the beautiful Lady Ravenwood had drowned herself in the black, murky waters of Ravenwood Pond. Others whispered of foul play and the devil’s wrath.

Now country-bred Sophy Dorring is about to become Ravenwood’s new bride. Drawn to his masculine strength and the glitter of desire that burned in his emerald eyes, the tawny-haired lass had her own reasons for agreeing to a marriage of convenience. One was vengeance, and in its pursuit she would entangle Julian in a blackmail plot, a duel at dawn, and a dangerous masquerade. The other reason was dearer to her heart, but just as wild a quest: Sophy Dorring intended to teach the devil to love again.
