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.

“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.

Mary Whaley has her hands full running a successful catering company and overseeing her supper club. She has everything she ever wanted—or so she thought. When she meets ridiculously hot and very dirty rock star Damien Hurley at her friend’s engagement party, the attraction she feels is overpowering—and she isn’t about to deny herself.
“Surrender” by Stephanie Tyler (romantic suspense, Berkley, April 2013, $7.99, 400pp)
Series: Book one, Section 8
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.
Title: “The Billionaire Princess”
Series: The Sherbrookes of Newport, book 3
Author: Christina Tetreault
Release Date: March 25, 2013
“Passion’s Trust” by Cara Carnes (ebook) Buy from Amazon
I am a fan of the Pleasure Brigade series by Cara Carnes, erotic romance novels that revolve around an exclusive BDSM club. This one fits into the series nicely, although it isn’t my favorite of the group. Katey and Lorenzo are a great couple though, and I did enjoy their HEA.
“Ruby” by Jeffe Kennedy (ebook, review copy, NetGalley) Buy from Amazon
While in New Orleans, Danielle meets a darky compelling chef who challenges her to give into his demands. When she does, the two practically combust. This one won’t be out until May 13th, but is a must-read for fans of erotic, BDSM romance.
Today, we welcome author Kate Noble's whose latest release is the historical romance "Let It Be." Kate is giving away a copy of this romance to one commenter.
From Kate Noble:
How to play the Appassionata, in 3 months or less.
In my latest historical romance, I set out a challenge for my heroine that is a little out of the ordinary. Not only does she have to travel to Venice, fall in love with a handsome man, and go through some momentous character growth over the course of the novel, I also make her have to learn a major concert level piece of music to play in front of Venice high society.
