These guys are so rich they can get away with anything, or so the rumors go.
“Mr. Insatiable” by Serenity Woods (ebook) Buy from Amazon
Okay, infertility plots in romance are generally triggers for me that often cause me to lose my mind (and yes, I would’ve avoided this one had I known it involved infertility in any way). The heroine of this one was raped as a teenager and caught an STD as a result. Doctors told her that she would likely never conceive. Nobody but her parents, her brother and her parents’ best friends knew about the doctor’s prediction. Now, she and the hero get together (he is her brother’s best friend and son of aforementioned BFFs of her parents) and have amazing sex. They start a relationship, but hero’s father warns his son that she is “damaged goods.” Seriously, damaged goods. Keep in mind that hero is adopted and happy in his life. However, his father knows how important it is to hero to have how own, biological children. After all of this angst over the possibility of infertility, I bet you can guess how this one magically ends. This one made me violently angry. I do want to add, however, that I did like the hero and the heroine and would have really enjoyed this book if the infertility part were removed. Sadly, the "damaged goods" thing will always be what I remember about this one.

“Unforgiven” by Anne Calhoun (review copy) Buy from Amazon
A review will be published closer to this one’s June 2013 release date. However, I enjoyed this book quite a bit – very angsty.

A review will be published closer to this one’s June 2013 release date. I will say that I enjoyed this one much more than “And Then She Fell.”

“Slow Surrender” by Cecilia Tan (ebook, review copy, NetGalley) Buy from Amazon
A review of this is to come. However, I enjoyed this erotic romance tremendously – with the caveat that this is part of a trilogy and that this part has a cliffhanger ending. Tan explores the psychological aspects of BDSM in this story, something that makes this one stand out in a sea full of romances featuring billionaire Doms.
“Spellfire” by Jessica Andersen (review copy) Buy from Amazon
This is the final installment of Jessica Andersen’s Nightkeepers series, a paranormal series that I adore. This final book is the story of Rabbit and Myrrine – and when the Maya end date finally arrives. The Nightkeepers must save the world with their own brand of magic. Andersen ended the series very well, although I did wish that Anna had a full romance rather than the hint of a HEA to come later.
