Review to come when this book is out.


“Heavy Issues” by Elle Aycart (ebook)
This contemporary, erotic romance was a pleasure to read. It is funny, it is hot and sexy. Cole is quite domineering which he wears quite well. I thought some parts of the story dragged a bit, but overall this one made me happy.

Review: Impulse

impulse-400-200x300“Impulse” by Moira Rogers (paranormal, Samhain, September 2012, $5.50, 231pp)


Series: Southern Arcana Book Five


Sera Sinclaire is a New Orleans rarity: a submissive coyote trapped in a town overrun by dominant shapeshifters. Worse, she lacks the willpower to deny the alphas-in-shining-armor who need her soothing presence, even when their protectiveness threatens to crush her hard-won self-reliance.


The only shifter she doesn’t want to push away is Julio Mendoza, a wolf so dominant he’s earned a place on the Southeast council.

Series Review: The Devil DeVere Series

The_Devils_Match_600x900The Devil DeVere Series including “A Wild Night’s Bride” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, April 2012, $0.99, 105pp), “The Virgin Huntress” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, June 2012, $3.49, 99pp), “The Devil You Know” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, July 2012, $4.99, 127pp) and “The Devil’s Match” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, August 2012, $3.49, 132pp)


For more on this series, check out what the author has to say about it.


There are four short books (each about 100 pages) in the Devil DeVere series by Victoria Vane chronicling the amorous adventures and happily ever afters of three couples. Each successive book builds upon the previous ones, making this a series that should be read in order. While the first story wasn’t my favorite of the group, it set the foundation for a strong and highly memorable romance between the debauched Ludovic DeVere and the reluctant and gun shy Lady Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley.

“Lord’s Fall” by Thea Harrison (review copy)
This book is out on November 6, so a review will be published closer to that date.


“Haven of Obedience” by Marina Anderson (ebook)
This one is billed as a “if you liked 50 Shades of Grey try this one.” I find that odd as this book is nothing like that. In this one, Natalie goes to the Haven to learn to be submissive – but she really isn’t. I did enjoy the book fine, but it isn’t as romance-y as I would like.


“Across My Knee: The Delights of Spanking” anthology (ebook)
I believe that I bought this book because it was free. While this qualifies as erotic rather than erotic romance, I enjoyed most of the stories in the anthology. Very steamy stuff!
