Between two brothers…
Xander Santiago spent years living it up as a billionaire playboy. Never given a chance to lead his family business in the boardroom, he became a Master in the bedroom instead. His older brother inherited the company and worked tirelessly to make it an empire. But while the cutthroat corporate espionage took its toll on Javier, nothing was as devastating as the seemingly senseless murder of his wife. It propelled him into a year of punishing rage and guilt…until Xander came to his rescue.

“Her Twin Wilde Cowboy Masters” by Chloe Lang (ebook)
Brothers sharing a woman is such an odd thing. I find it creepy, yet I can’t stop reading about it. I bought this one expecting it to be a crack read to help get me out of a reading slump, and boy did it live up to my expectations.
“Seven Night Stand” by Nicole Helm (ebook, review copy)
Review to come.
“Forged in Steele” by Maya Banks (ebook, review copy)
This one isn’t out until the end of June.

“Own the Wind” by Kristen Ashley (contemporary, Forever, April 2013, $3.79, 448pp)
Series: Chaos, book one
Too hot to handle . . .
Tabitha Allen grew up in the thick of Chaos-the Chaos Motorcycle Club, that is. Her father is Chaos' leader, and the club has always had her back. But one rider was different from the start. When Tabby was running wild, Shy Cage was there. When tragedy tore her life apart, he helped her piece it back together. And now, Tabby's thinking about much more than friendship . . .
“Play With Me” by Alisha Rai (ebook) Buy from Amazon
This erotic novella features a reunion between high school sweethearts. This one is hot and steamy and had the most fascinating use of a pen that I’ve ever read. This isn’t a serial, but seems to be a series about the same couple. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Wyatt and Tatiana next.
“The Devil’s Due” by Lora Leigh in “Enthralled” anthology (review copy) Buy from Amazon
This book came in the mail on Monday, and after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, I needed a distraction. Counting spurts in the latest Lora Leigh book seemed like it would be a great distraction. It really was, although I didn’t know it would be the last book I read this week. By the way, this 112 page novella had nine spurts, all love spurts. So, Devil Black rates high on the spurt scale. This one isn't out until July 2, 2013.
“Hero of My Heart” by Megan Frampton (historical, Loveswept, April 2013, $2.99, 264pp)
When Mary Smith’s corrupt, debt-ridden brother drags her to a seedy pub to sell her virtue to the highest bidder, Alasdair Thornham leaps to the rescue. Of course the marquess is far from perfect husband material. Although he is exceedingly handsome, with a perfect, strong body, chiseled jaw, and piercing green eyes, Alasdair is also too fond of opium, preferring delirium to reality. Still, he has come to Mary’s aid, and now she intends to return the favor. She will show him that he is not evil, just troubled.

Desperate, fearless, and hunted
For former Navy SEAL Dare O’Rourke, Section 8 was legendary. The son of one of its missing members, he grew up in the shadow of its secrets. All he knew was that it was a cabal of operatives discharged from branches of the military and reassigned to extremely dangerous, off-the-books international missions. And that their handler was as shrouded in mystery as the missions themselves.
