Under His Kilt by Melissa Blue

Jocelyn Pearson is determined to spend her last month as a twenty-something doing everything she's too busy or scared to try. Her imagination runs wild and then fixates on Ian Baird. He'll be working at the Langston Museum for a short stint as a consulting curator. He's Scottish. He believes sex is fun to be had. He's the perfect choice for a fling. She only has to get him break his rule about sleeping with co-workers. Seducing a man was on her bucket list...

Ian is no one's fool and knows exactly what Jocelyn wants—him. If she didn't work for the Langston Museum, he'd be more than happy to oblige any and every fantasy she desired, but she's the curator. She's sweet, inexperienced and well liked by everyone including the museum owner and director. Ian can't risk losing such an important contact for his consulting business. Not even when everything within in him craves a taste of her.

When Jocelyn sets her sights on him, there's no way Ian can deny her. They agree their affair will end in thirty days. No emotions, no entanglements, just sex. The closer the end date looms, they start to question if it's possible to walk away. They'll either have to come to terms of what they've become or stick to their original agreement.

Inn For The Holidays by Ella Jade

Happy Holidays! I’m thrilled to announce the release of Inn for the Holidays, a Pleasure Inn Series short, featuring Logan and Elyse from Master of the Inn.

Innkeepers Logan and Elyse Cole have been making people’s fantasies a reality for the past six months at their popular bed and breakfast. While running Pleasure Inn has been a rewarding experience for the happy couple, it also requires long hours and busy weekends. Catering to their guests’ whims and fantasies doesn’t leave much free time for the Coles. They need a few days to reconnect and indulge in their own fantasies.
Logan makes that happen with a surprise gift to his wife. He reserves the inn for just the two of them several days before Christmas. Two nights of uninterrupted romance is exactly what this couple needs. Logan reminds Elyse what drew her to him in the first place. He vows to make good on his promise to always make all of her fantasies a reality.
She wants nothing more than for the Master of the Inn to make an appearance this holiday season.

A Pleasure Inn series short, featuring Logan and Elyse from Master of the Inn. All books in this series can stand alone and/or can be read in any order.

The Exhibition by London Saint James:

Bianca Kirkland has known Slater Nolan most of her life. She practically spent every waking moment of her formative years in his house, hanging out with her best friend and his younger brother, Jayce. Now they’re all grown up, and Bianca is even more attracted to Slater, but it’s just as hopeless as when she was a girl. The dominant, artistic, and sexy Slater Nolan has always been out of her league, or so she thought, until the night she attended his newest art exhibition.

Will Bianca find Slater to be more than she bargained for, or will she finally do the one thing she really wants to do—submit to desire?

Amazing Maisie by Raven McAllan:

Maisie is left a challenge by her new boyfriend Rob. He is an experienced Dom and not willing to settle for anything less than true submission. Whilst he is away on a business trip they communicate via e-mail and Maisie is asked to explore her submissive tendencies. When Rob returns it's time to experience these to the full.

Will Maisie find true fulfillment as his sub, or will it be all over?

Liberating Lua by Elyzabeth M. VaLey:

Lord Jürgen GreyStorm, is married to the love of his life, Lady Lua Mirabella. Marriage, however, is not what he expected. His adored wife is unresponsive when he lies between her legs every night, the idea that sex is a sin instilled into her since childhood. Furthermore, Jürgen`s way of love involves chains, spanks and dominance in a way that he fears, would drive his Lua away forever.

For Lady Lua Mirabella sex is an obligation. Or at least, that’s what she’s been taught that it should be. The truth is, that her tactic of lying stiff as a board while her beloved husband ruts into her is driving her insane and him away. She loves Jürgen but when she discovers his dark tastes, she will have to decide whether to submit to him fully and willingly or step away.

Taboo by Doris O’Connor:

What can be more Taboo than lusting after your father's sex-on-legs friend? Lust turns to love when Josh rescues Lucy from a scene going badly wrong. Oh yes, that'll be another taboo then, the whole need to submit thing. Is Lucy ready to deal with the very real life consequences of her actions?

Joshua is a Dom on a mission - to claim his best friend's daughter.

Lock, Stock, and Spank Her by R. Brennan:

After a bad relationship with a cheating ex-dominant, Beth Turner has been reluctant to jump back into the D/s dating scene. Her best friend, Marcy, who just happens to be a lifestyle mistress, finally convinces Beth to take the plunge and attend a local fetish munch as her guest.
Beth plans to take it slow, and certainly doesn’t expect to run into the ultra-dominant Alexander Sterling, whose BDSM inventions are the stuff of local legend. Yet, somehow, he manages to convince her to be the test subject in his spanking demonstration. Strapped into his newest invention, Beth learns quickly there is more to him than a sexy, shaved head and form-fitting leather pants. In fact, Alexander Sterling just may be her masterful perfect match.

The Cowboy and the Schoolmarm by Nikki Prince:

Melanie Thurman never thought she’d get a second chance at her cowboy. A cowboy who happens to be the Dom she left behind when she married his rival.

Shiloh Cody had left town when the woman he wanted married another. He’d stayed away as long as he could then he’d found out that Melanie was a widow. Damned if he’d let anything stand between him and her submission. This time the teacher had a lesson to learn.

Happy Release Day to Robin Neeley - Christmas Dinner

News anchor Amanda Turner used to love everything about the holidays—the eggnog sugar cookies, the tacky family Christmas sweaters, and a lawn decorated with so many multi-colored lights that 747s could land safely. That is until her boyfriend dumped her in front of the whole town on Christmas Eve. Humiliated, she fled her small town start a new life. Two years later, she’s finally ready to return to the scene of the emotional crime, until she learns that her ex is engaged. Now, the only thing worse than going home is going home single.

Tate Ryan, her tall, dark, and arrogant co-anchor, offers to pose as her boyfriend. There’s one problem, though: they barely like each other, and he recently scooped her story on live TV. But she needs a ride home and a boyfriend fast, so Tate will have to do.
As she watches Tate interact with her family and town residents, fully embracing the spirit of the holiday season, she starts to see his kindhearted side. She can’t help but wonder if she was wrong about him. Perhaps he isn’t the conniving co-worker that she once thought. And her new feelings for him would definitely put her on the naughty list.

Tate has his own agenda for the weekend that includes telling Amanda he’s been in love with her since the first time they met. He’s ready to reveal all during Christmas dinner but fate has other plans.

Behind closed doors. Similar to Christmas movies such as 12 Dates of Christmas, Holiday in Handcuffs, Snowglobe.

The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn

Hugh Prentice has never liked Lady Sarah Pleinsworth, and his opinion is confirmed when he overhears her yammering on about how she must get married this season or she will simply die. He’s never had patience for dramatic females, and the words shy and retiring have never been in Sarah’s vocabulary. Besides, even if he did grow to enjoy her company, it wouldn’t matter. A reckless duel has left this brilliant mathematician with a ruined leg, and now, unable to run, ride, or even waltz, he could never court a woman like Sarah, much less dream of marrying her.

Sarah has never forgiven Hugh for the duel he fought three years earlier, the one that forced her cousin into exile, nearly destroying her family. But even if she could find a way to forgive him, it wouldn’t matter. She doesn’t care that his leg is less than perfect, it’s his personality she can’t stand.

But when the pair is forced to spend a week in close company they discover that opinions--even those firmest held--can, in fact, be altered. And when a kiss leads to two, three and four the mathematician may lose count and the miss may, for the first time, find herself speechless.

What is New Adult according to author Sarah Daltry

Today Sarah Daltry is dropping in to tell us a little more about New Adult. That it isn't just about the character and the age. There is more to it.

What is New Adult?

Forget Me Not, along with Lily of the Valley, Star of Bethlehem, and the rest of the planned Flowering series, is a New Adult novel. However, that distinction seems to be unclear to a lot of people, who label things like Fifty Shades of Grey as New Adult. I don’t see any book featuring a character in their late teens or early 20’s as New Adult. I think there are specific elements that need to be present to categorize as book as truly NA.

Guest: Samantha Darling - Revenge In Rio

Welcome Samantha Darling back to the blog. Today she's telling us all about juggling her kids, her day job, and writing. Oh, and the husband too!

Juggling the kids, the day job and the writing.

Works finished. The dinners cooked, check. The kids are bathed and in bed, check. I’ve spent some time with my hubby (making sure he doesn’t feel left out), check. I’ve washed the dishes and done the laundry, check. We all know how the list goes….on and on and on and on with the end never in sight. So, when do I write amongst all of these day-to-day regular things that take up so much of our time?
Good question!

Usually once the top four things are done, I’ll sit in the lounge with the laptop balancing on my knees and start to tap away. By this time it’s around 9pm so I know I have about an hour – hour and half’s worth of stamina left in me.
