Fall into Bed: September 2013’s Best Erotic Romance

Aftermath by Cara DeeIn need of some sexy reading material to fill your e-reader? I’m here for you. Each month I will bring you an assortment of erotic pleasure reads to tempt your palate—and your credit card....

Love is in the air this month as we watch the slow sensual dance of love and loss in the following erotic offerings.

Aftermath by Cara Dee

Austin Huntley and Cameron Nash are like night and day. One is a family man, works in a nice office, drives an expensive car, and is content to be content. The other one is an antisocial car mechanic with a short fuse.

Some things don’t change. Others definitely do.

After surviving a five-months long kidnapping together, they struggle to return to normalcy, all while realizing that they're more drawn to each other than they ever could've imagined.

“I know I'm not normal, but I'm not fucking stupid.”

“Define normal,” Austin countered quietly, meeting Cam in the doorway. “And for not being normal, you're the only person in the world who makes sense right now. What does that say about me?”

Warning: This story contains violence and scenes of an explicit, erotic nature between two men and is intended for adults, 18+.

Aftermath is a emotional and romantic M/M story of survival between two men who were kidnapped and tortured for five months. We witness the aftermath of their rescue and the journey the men go through to let go of the guilt and pain of their ordeal.

Uncommon Passion by Anne CalhounUncommon Passion by Anne Calhoun

After leaving a restrictive religious community, Rachel Hill is on a mission to divest herself of her virginity. Newly independent and struggling to establish herself, she’s not looking for anything complicated. She bids on sexy SWAT officer Ben Harris at a bachelor auction, confident he’ll give her the night of her life and nothing more.

But Ben is jaded and detached, living his life in an endless cycle of danger-fueled adrenaline jags, drinking, and sex. When he misses the fact that his bachelor auction hookup is a virgin, he’s shocked by his obliviousness, and by the risk she took. To make amends, Ben offers Rachel all he can: a no-strings-attached sexual education.

Ben’s lessons introduce Rachel to down and dirty passion, but she’s searching for something more profound than sex, and she’s willing to walk away to find it. Ben can’t get Rachel out of his head, but will he come to terms with his troubled past and learn to love?

Uncommon Passion is a delectably raw and passionate erotic romance. Two damaged souls find the physical release they crave in their sensual interludes, but when the emotions become too much for one of them to handle, the decision they make hurts them both.

Tempting Fate by Amber Lin

Rose Murphy is ready to break free from her brother’s control. She’s ready to open her own ballet studio. And most of all, she’s ready to live without fear. So when she sees her brother’s lawyer, the man she’s lusted after for years, she gives in to her body’s desires.

A sexy show through her bedroom window whets both their appetites. On Drew’s next visit, he returns the striptease favor. Mutual masturbation gives way to a naughty late night phone call. She’s a breath away from everything she’s hoped for, but not everyone wants them to be together. When the relationship comes to light, their sensual peace may be shattered.

Amber Lin is a auto buy for me when it comes to erotic romance because of her convincingly damaged characters and rich storylines. Tempting Fate is a novella about a young woman who falls for her controlling brother’s best friend. Sensual with touch of suspense, this erotic niblet hit all the right spots.

Whiskey and Wry by Rhys FordWhiskey and Wry (Sinners, #2) by Rhys Ford

He was dead. And it was murder most foul. If erasing a man’s existence could even be called murder.

When Damien Mitchell wakes, he finds himself without a life or a name. The Montana asylum’s doctors tell him he’s delusional and his memories are all lies: he’s really Stephen Thompson, and he’d gone over the edge, obsessing about a rock star who died in a fiery crash. His chance to escape back to his own life comes when his prison burns, but a gunman is waiting for him, determined that neither Stephen Thompson nor Damien Mitchell will escape.

With the assassin on his tail, Damien flees to the City by the Bay, but keeping a low profile is the only way he’ll survive as he searches San Francisco for his best friend, Miki St. John. Falling back on what kept him fed before he made it big, Damien sings for his supper outside Finnegan’s, an Irish pub on the pier, and he soon falls in with the owner, Sionn Murphy. Damien doesn’t need a complication like Sionn, and to make matters worse, the gunman—who doesn’t mind going through Sionn or anyone else if that’s what it takes kill Damien—shows up to finish what he started.

Whisky & Wry is the second book in Ford’s Sinners series. A famous musician, presumed dead, escapes his prison and begins a frantic search for his best friend and finds a passionate love along the way. Humor and suspense go hand in hand in this erotic M/M romance.

The Corrupt Comte by Edie Harris

Gaspard Toussaint is known throughout 1820 French society as the “molly comte,” a foppish throw pillow of an aristocrat. But his entire life is a twisted mass of secrets and lies as a spy for the Crown. His final covert act will have him fleeing his broken country forever…but before he can escape, he needs the power and safety that only money can provide. And no one has more money than English heiress Claudia Pascale.

The only child of a wealthy tradesman, Claudia has continually failed to catch a husband—due in large part to her uncontrollable stutter. Spurned by a dashing French lieutenant and desperate to escape her parents’ household, she joins forces with the seemingly harmless Gaspard to learn how to properly ensnare a spouse: through seduction.

All too soon, Gaspard’s lessons in delicious domination and sinful submission make Claudia suspicious that he is not what everyone believes him to be. And Gaspard realizes his quest to possess her is becoming less about her dowry…and more about the woman herself.

Warning: Contains an aggressive Frenchman with extremely loose morals, a determined heiress who can’t refuse a dare, and bedroom games where boundaries were made to be crossed.

The Corrupt Comte is a deliciously erotic historical romance that includes surprisingly emotional prose and exploding passion. A young woman, unloved by her parents, catches the eye of an emotionally damaged spy who seeks her for her fortune. When they dig deep into the heart of each other, a brilliant love story is born.

I had pleasure to read all of these and I loved them all. (Aftermath was just an ok read for me). Uncommon Passion- ::fanning herself::
@Megan- I bought Edie Harris when I read Mandi's review. It's soooo good. Really pleasent surprise.
6. JenniferTM
Uncommon Passion looks promising- but with a $9.99 price tag I'm not sure I want to chance it. I usually won't pay that much unless it's a tried and true favorite. Is this a full length story or novella length?
7. Pdubs
I'm happy to see two m/m novels included in your selections.

JenniferTM - it's a full length novel. $9.99 does seems steep (I bought the Kindle version for $7.99) but I would pay that again. I really liked the story - one of my favorite stand-alone's I've read in a while.
