Cover Reveal: Hide and Expose by Drew Jordan

One of the most memorable books that I read in 2015 was Drew Jordan's Crash, an erotic thriller taking place in the frozen Alaskan wilderness. It is the first book in a trilogy following the same couple. To see more about Crash, check out my review. I am pleased to host Drew Jordan to reveal the covers for both Hide and Expose (books 2 & 3). I personally can't wait to read these next two books.

Series: Pushing the Limits, book 1

 

Summary:
She dominates his body and his mind...but can he give up control without handing over his heart?

 

ILovedRogueI feel so much more removed from historical romances than I used to be. At one point, historical romance was my go-to genre. But in 2015, I made an effort to read more and therefore have a good number of them on my favorite reads of 2015! I already posted my favorite kinky reads of 2015 and my favorite new to me authors of 2015.

 

I Loved a Rogue by Katharine Ashe: This romance has a vicar’s daughter and the gypsy she has always loved. Talieson returns home, after years away, and Eleanor isn’t sure what to do. Her life is in a bit of an uproar with her father’s very recent marriage. She feels a bit left out and left behind. With Talieson’s return, Eleanor decides to go off on an adventure to find out about her family (she and her sisters were adopted). Things between Eleanor and Talieson are tense and fraught with sexual tension. He doesn’t believe he is good enough for Eleanor, but also can’t resist her. I adored the emotional angst and longing in this romance. It was at times a tense read, but so very worth it. Also, I recommend reading the Prince Catcher books in order as there is a series arc.

 

TiedtoTroubleTied to Trouble by Megan Erickson (contemporary, m/m, Entangled, January 2016)

2015 Roundup: My Favorite Kinky Books

companioncontractI read a crap ton of kinky romances, so it probably isn’t surprising that there are fifteen on my list of favorites of 2015. And, of course, there are several other kinky books that aren’t here but on my New to Me Authors of 2015 post. I recommend all of these books!

 

Intimate Geography & Craving Flight by Tamsen Parker: Intimate Geography is an excellent erotic, BDSM romance with a beta Dom - not something you see in most BDSM romances. See my full review. And honestly, Craving Flight might actually be a better book. This kinky novella features an Orthodox Jewish butcher and a recently divorced woman who is desperate to find her place in the Orthodox community. There is indeed hot kink in this story, but the conflict is more about religion and the heroine’s emotional journey. This is an amazing erotic novella that is free - and a MUST READ!

Spying on the Boss by Janet Lee Nye

SpyingBossSpying on the Boss by Janet Lee Nye (contemporary, Harlequin Superromance, January 2016)

 

Summary:
The new guy's turning her into a hot mess!

A difficult childhood left Sadie Martin more interested in work than anything else, including romance. But she'd be a fool not to notice that her newest employee is scorching hot. As long as he works for her, though, he's off-limits. Her company—sexy guys who clean houses—comes first. So why are Wyatt Anderson and his adorable niece always on her mind? When attraction turns into more, suddenly everything is a lot more complicated…and, frankly, a huge mess. What Sadie and Wyatt need is a clean slate. For understanding…and love.

2015 Roundup: New to Me Authors

changingHisGameFor my 2015 year in review, I will be doing several posts - mostly because there were about 87 books on my list of reads that stood out to me and I had to group them together. The first post is new to me authors in 2015 with information about their books that I loved.

 

I am always excited to discover new authors, and I found many new ones to feed my reading habit in 2015.

 

Kate Canterbary: I can’t exactly remember how I discovered Kate Canterbary, but I think through talking to her on twitter. If I remember correctly, she mentioned her self-published series about the Walsh siblings and that it was set in Boston. I always look at books set in Massachusetts. And I was thrilled with the first book in the series, Underneath it All. I immediately read the next book, The Space Between and then badgered the poor author until she finished the next two books, Necessary Restorations and The Cornerstone. I adore all of the books in this series which I would classify as super sexy and smart contemporary romance with tortured characters. Canterbary’s heroines can be difficult to like with hard-to-crack outer shells, but this is one of the things that makes the books so special - because getting to know them is so worth it.
