Review: Skin in the Game

SitG-500px“Skin in the Game” by Jackie Barbosa (contemporary, Entangled, May 2013, $2.99, 250pp)


Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.


Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position.


Heart of ObsidianNalini Singh's Heart of Obsidian (out on June 4th) is one of the most highly anticipated releases on 2013 and is sure to turn the Psy/Changeling world on its ear. Find out what Nalini Singh has to say about this book, the series and her upcoming Guild Hunter book.


  1. Heart of Obsidian (out June 4th) is the 12th book of your wildly popular Psy/Changeling series. Have you been surprised by the series’ success?


Yes, happily so! As a writer, I felt in my gut that Slave to Sensation (book 1) was the start of something special, but I had no way of knowing if readers would feel the same. I’m so grateful to every reader who’s come along with me on this ride, and I hope they continue to do so as the series goes forward.


“Tempted into Danger” by Melissa Cutler (review copy)
Review to come. This is a romantic suspense story where the hero rescues the heroine and they trek through the jungle.


“Needing Nita” by Norah Wilson (ebook)
This is an erotic novella about an attorney who gives into her desire for a sexy cop only after she thinks she might have a brain tumor. I enjoyed this one.


“Her Master’s Kiss” by Vivien Sparxx (ebook)
This one isn’t my thing. It is the story of a woman who wants to be trained to be a slave – and she and her master find much more. The master/slave relationship portrayed here is rather harsh and missing the emotional connection that I need to believe in the relationship.


DaniCollinsToday, RNN welcomes author Dani Collins talking about how many times one can be a debut author. Collins is also giving away a copy of her latest "Proof of Their Sin."


Debut Redux by Dani Collins

How many times can you debut as an author? Because I’m going on my fourth and I’m starting to feel like it’s time to embrace the multi-published mantle.


Here’s what happened. I wrote for twenty-five years without a sale. One year ago this month, Mills & Boon London called to offer me a two-book contract for their Modern/Presents line. Yay! My first book sale.


“Indulging the Professor” by Ella Jade (ebook)
This is a good, short story about a professor and his student who plan a getaway to begin their relationship after she graduates. This was a fun and sexy story.


“Fire Inside” by Kristen Ashley (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come, but Lanie and Hop’s story is now one of my favorite Kristen Ashley books!


“A Virgin for Two Brothers” by Jenika Snow (ebook)
This is a futuristic book featuring a heroine who puts herself into a virgin auction in order to get money to help her family. She is purchased by two men. I enjoyed this one, but felt it was too short for the price. I much prefer longer stories.


ChattCoverpart1RNN welcomes author Logan Belle to talk about her new release and its relation to "Lady Chatterly's Lover."


Love and The Lady: Why I Can’t Forget Lady Chatterley’s Lover

By Logan Belle


            My fiancé was cleaning out a closet when he found his dusty old copy of D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. He told me it was the first “erotic” novel he’d ever read. I said it was probably mine, too. He said, you should write a modern version of it. I said, you’re crazy. You don’t re-paint the Mona Lisa.


Today, RNN is participating in a scavenger hunt blog hop for the cover reveal of Amanda Usen's Into the Fire (releasing June 10th). Read on to learn how to enter to win a foodie gift pack as part of the scavenger hunt.


We are hosting puzzle piece #5 and our ingredient is . . . . . . eggs!




“A Hot Mess” by Christy Gissendaner (ebook)
I enjoyed this story about a woman who is dumped by her fiancé in Vegas. She calls her old friend Dylan to come rescue her – and their relationship takes a new turn.


“The Submissive” by Tara Sue Me (review copy)
I’m pondering this one. I don’t think it was my favorite story. I had a hard time warming up to the hero. I felt he was rather removed and somewhat unfeeling. However, I was caught up in the story enough that I think I will have to read the next two stories in the trilogy.


“His Risk to Take” by Tessa Bailey (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
A review of this title, out on May 13, will be coming. However, Tessa Bailey is the most recent author added to my “Must Buy” list. She has a knack for writing heroes who are very dirty talkers.
