The Siren by Tiffany Reisz (May 2012)
Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different-more serious, more personal-and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.
Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.
Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining...and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more tortuous-staying away from him...or returning to his bed?
Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.
The Siren is a no-holds-barred erotic that denies us the hearts and flowers of romance and goes straight for the jugular. Intense, draining, subversive, and undeniably sinful; Tiffany Reisz writes a provocative story about discovering and accepting who you are. Not for the faint of heart.
If you are unsure about trying a full length by this author, try her novella, Seven Day Loan. It’s a short but very intense erotic about a true submissive who is loaned out by her master in order to help a fellow friend and dom deal with the grief over his wife’s death. An small but interesting look at true submissiveness and the play of power between master and slave. What I really enjoyed was the conflict between Eleanor’s needs and wants. She is unable to connect emotionally with her master (due to his position and boy is THAT a surprise o_0) and craves the need to feel the emotional aspects of such a relationship. Something that Daniel tries to offer her. A very good look into the writing style of Ms. Reisz.
The Hostage Bargain by Annika Martin (April 2012)
When small town girl Melinda Prescott is taken hostage by three hot bank robbers, she quickly discovers that a life of bank heists, luxury hotels, and kinky menages is way more exciting than working on the family sheep farm. She should be scared of her dominating, fierce captors...but there’s something wicked inside her that’s craving to obey their every dark desire.
Keeping in mind that story is suppose to be silly and over the top—I, personally, didn’t enjoy it. I’m just not a menage person. But it has have numerous good reviews and I do think it will appeal to the majority.
Good Bones by Kim Fielding (April 2012)
Skinny, quiet hipster Dylan Warner was the kind of guy other men barely glanced at until an evening’s indiscretion with a handsome stranger turned him into a werewolf. Now, despite a slightly hairy handicap, he just wants to live an ordinary—if lonely—life as an architect. He tries to keep his wild impulses in check, but after one too many close calls, Dylan gives up his urban life and moves to the country, where he will be less likely to harm someone else. His new home is a dilapidated but promising house that comes with a former Christmas tree farm and a solitary neighbor: sexy, rustic Chris Nock.
A sweet, romantic PNR M/M that give us extremely personable and stubborn men who you will grow to love and enough angst and smexy times to keep you glued to the pages.
Cost of Repairs by A.M. Arthur (June 5, 2012)
Police officer Samuel Briggs is getting to know the people on his new, third-shift beat, but he’d prefer they not know too much about him—or the painful past that drove him away from New Mexico to start fresh in small-town Stratton, PA.
All he wants is peace, a manageable routine, and time to fix up his project home. There’s no room in his broken heart for a new relationship. It’s crowded with too many memories. But there’s something about the Dixie’s Cup short-order cook, who’s flirty one minute, distracted the next, that piques Sam’s interest.
Part-time cook, part-time hardware salesman and full-time handyman Rey King lives to work—but not because he loves it. Relationships? No time. Until one glance at Sam’s haunted eyes sends a plumb line straight to his wary heart.
One afternoon of impulsive, no-strings sex begins to grow into a cautious friendship. But when Rey is seriously injured protecting a friend, the cracks in their already shaky foundation begin to show. Falling in love wasn’t in either man’s recovery plan…and this time, the risk could be too great.
Emotionally heartbreaking, yet filled with the promise of relief; we get an intimate view of two strangers who through time, effort, and a lot of angst, find the ability to move forward and forgive themselves. Dramatic, hopeful, and quite sexy.
